Greetings brethren, today, the 15th of April 2018, marks the 5th Anniversary since the “birth” of the MasonicFind website and brand. This post will be quick, but we want to document the progress we have made with you all since you were all a part of this journey we have going on here. The Beginnings… The first launch of the MasonicFind website looked like this: The idea came when one Brother (we’re three now running…

How do I become a Freemason? This is a question we get asked often on our website and on our social media pages so we’ve finally decided to write a simple guide about this and detail the step-by-step process of how to join the Freemasons – a Craft dating back hundreds of years where Kings and Presidents were also proud members. I’m also happy to see that so many people from all over the world…

Freemasonry, sadly enough, is seen as an “old person’s game”. Youngsters are said to be turning their back on Freemasonry because it’s seen as something their grandpa and retired uncle would do. This is far from the truth. Freemasonry is alive and well and boasts a growing number of youngsters. The problem facing Freemasonry is that Masonic Lodges, are failing in getting themselves set up online and ready to attract new youngster (who tend to…

Freemasonry is a complicated matter for many people. The general population mostly comes to know of Freemasonry through media which, can be skewed in many different ways, to say the least. The many centuries of mysteries, secrets, conspiracy theories and other Masonic events has left a toll on people and as you’d expect, many are turning to Google for answers to their questions about Freemasonry. MasonicFind.com’s goal has always been to help educate the uninitiated about…

Freemasonry is a social order which accepts members from all tribes, religions, creeds and social status. The teachings are basically founded on the principles of truth and love for each other, which backs the rule that you should treat others as you would like them to treat you. Most people believe that most US presidents were Freemasons. However; only 15 of them were actual freemasons. Here are the 15 US Presidents who were also Freemasons… George Washington…

Brethren, today we’re going to be discussing a very controversial topic that I know many people have strong views against/for. Today we are discussing; homosexuality in Freemasonry. You are welcome (and encouraged) to add your views (for or against) but please; let’s keep it civil. The number of openly homosexual people is growing. This is not because more people are homosexual today than before, but because, even though homosexuals are still not widely accepted, homosexuality is…

For some odd reason, Freemasonry is always associated with (shady) looking old men that just ooze the aura they have all the arrogance, money and power in the world. This is a very wrong assumption of Freemasonry and the 5,000,000+ Freemasons worldwide.  From my experiences in the Craft and from being a Master Mason for nearly 10 years now, I have to say that the general perception of the “powerful Freemason” is completely not true.…

Are there still Freemasons today? I came across this weird (yet understandable) question while browsing through our MasonicFind Twitter page. Many out there only know about Freemasonry from movies and what they hear in the media (and let’s face it – it’s not exactly flattering). Understandably, many have questions about the Craft so given how we aim to help educate the world about Freemasonry through this website – we decided to answer this question for…

Perhaps no other organization or fraternity has been subjected to conspiracy theories and myths as is the case with Freemasonry. Anti-Masonry activists have been instrumental in waging a centuries-old war against Freemasonry and have used every trick and tool available in the arsenal of a propagandist for this purpose. Myths can seize human imagination and no one understands this better than Anti-Masonry activists. We as humans have a natural fear of anything which we don’t…

What are the benefits of being a Freemason? Today’s post is for those who have yet to join Freemasonry and are wondering what the benefits of becoming a member are. If you are thinking of joining this Craft (a Craft that has had Kings & Presidents within its ranks) and you’re wondering what you will get out of your membership, then this is for you. I’ve compiled a small list to detail just some of…

Brethren and fellows alike we are in a very important time for Freemasonry. Our craft needs us now more than ever, as our lodges and members age. It is imperative that we as modern masons do something to create that spark that once made our craft so appealing to the men of our respective countries. On the left here, you will see a graphic of the different degrees and symbols that make up the lifelong…

Conspiracy theorists and anti-masons have often put forward theories that notable historical figures have been associated with Freemasonry for centuries. The thrust of this argument has helped create a perception that Freemasons are on some sort of a mission to control the world. A brief look at the history of Freemasons and Freemasonry is more than enough to convince one about the positive contributions of Freemasons to Human Civilization. Masons have included Kings, Presidents, Politicians,…

Greetings brethren. Today we have a special piece for you that I am sure you’re going to enjoy reading. We’ve tracked down a female Freemason in the UK and she was kind enough to answer your questions (if you’re on my email list, you would’ve had the chance to suggest some questions too). One of our most popular blog posts is “Women In Freemasonry: Co-Masonry & More” and yes, it is a very controversial subject.…

Making good men better is to extract the essence of the Masonic experience. The ritual and ceremony serve to convey and teach certain moral lessons and elevate the individuals to a position higher than themselves. The lessons are things you have likely already heard or have learned in a moral society. What makes them unique to Freemasonry is that they are presented in a specific format and context. We have come to realize, during the…

Many people wonder: what is the All-Seeing Eye, where does it come from and WHY is it such a fundamental widely-recognized symbol of Freemasonry? The symbol of the All-Seeing Eye was “created” many years ago (since the Egyptian times at the very least), and it is still a common sight today with many Masonic conspiracy theories around it. Pop culture is fascinated by it as well, with the symbol used in many movies and music…

Freemasonry is definitely one of the oldest existing organisations in the world and it’s organised ritual have been around since pre-Medieval times. But how did Freemasonry survive so long? And who are the “modern freemasons” keeping it alive? Rather than how it survived, we should ask why it has survived. In fact, Freemasonry has not only survived, but it has kept on growing steadily, and with more than 6 million members worldwide, it is still…

Many times since I became a member of this grand fraternity, I have in retrospective moments, asked myself, why I am proud to be a Mason and I dwell upon those things that Masonry has brought before me. The feelings of warmth, friendship, and potential comfort in times of distress are always with me, yet they seem to appear most readily in Lodge. I think that Masonry is many things to many people, and we…

It is no easy task to find an answer to the question: What is Freemasonry? This Fraternal organisation has existed for many, many years, and is still operative today with Lodges in most countries of the world and more than 6 million Freemasons all over the world. Basically, Freemasonry is an organisation which arose a long time ago that was originally a “meeting group” where medieval masons, (or stone workers), shared their secrets for working…

We owe our being to those who came before us. We are here because they were here, and of the way, their lives unfolded. Imagine, if you will, the countless chance happenings, the many coincidences and accidents, all of which had to come about in the precise way they did, in order to result in our being here, and, being what we are! Each of us attends our Lodge meetings because we want to. We…

Without any exaggeration, we can put this on our Masonic honor and tell you that we get at least two people a day asking us whether you can join the freemasons online. This site is dedicated to answering any questions both masons, and non-masons may have about the Craft but if there is a question we wouldn’t like to answer again, it’s that one. Can you join the Freemasons online? Absolutely not. If you do…

So a few weeks ago we published a highly controversial blog post that discussed homosexuality in Freemasonry. We received a ton of comments and we even took a poll on it which you can see the results for yourself here. Today we’re going to be discussing another very controversial topic and that is the role of women in Freemasonry. Please read this article with an open mind and feel free to add any comments (whatever…

Although Freemasonry originated in the West, with the spread of European empires Freemasonry also spread globally in the 17th and 18th centuries. By the end of the 18th century, Freemasons can be found from America to India and from Egypt to Russia. Indeed, Freemasons can be considered as having established a truly global network by the end of 18th century. Unlike many other organizations claiming to be working towards a universal brotherhood of mankind, Freemasonry…

Every day, hundreds of new brethren are joining the Masonic Brotherhood thus guaranteeing it will stay alive for the foreseeable future. While all that is exciting and we have our hopes up about Freemasonry, I am sure (as all you experienced brethren know), being a newly entered apprentice is fun, exciting but sometimes a bit confusing. That is why we’ve taken to our Facebook page and asked the brethren of the page to offer ONE…

Greetings brothers, today we’re going to take a trip around the world and visit 5 very famous masonic buildings that are truly glorious and awe-inspiring. I have to credit Wikipedia for helping me create this list and also for the pictures. You can see a whole list of masonic Grand Lodges around the world on Wikipedia. Glad to say I have visited 3 of these places but it would be nice to visit them all…

Greetings brethren, I just came across a video on YouTube on the UGLE’s (United Grand Lodge Of England) channel and I just had to share it with you. It’s really a heart-warming short film about the lives of random Freemasons in the UK. It takes a close look at the lives, families, traditions and many charities and events being run by our UK brothers. Again, I have to say it’s super awesome and you should really take…

A fraternity illustrated by symbols, Freemasonry has countless different symbols to put its message across to its members and to remind them of the teachings of the fraternity. One that is often misunderstood and which has, over the centuries, been debated over and over again is the letter G, which appears in the most widely recognized symbol of Freemasonry. In this article, we will explore various possible meanings and take a look at the meaning…

So you’d like to join the biggest and oldest fraternities in the world? Good for you! Freemasonry is a beautiful thing. Ask any member and he’ll tell you how Freemasonry has helped him improve himself, his life and his behaviour towards his fellow man. All you need to do is make sure you are eligible to be Freemason and then to find a local Masonic Lodge. Today, we will be showing you how to find…

With thousands of members in many countries across the world, the Order of the Eastern Star is the largest fraternity in the whole world where both men and women can be members. See our article about women in Freemasonry here.  Following is a brief article about the origins of the Order of the Eastern Star, taking a look at its founders and how it started, and also the similarities and differences between Freemasonry and the Eastern…

There are many myths and “theories” about Freemasonry, and sometimes it may be hard to distinguish between the myths and the actual facts. Rumors throughout the many years of Freemasonry has brought about plenty of wrong information, misguided accusations and all-around “illiteracy” about the craft. That is why today we’d like to share some very interesting (and truthful) facts about Freemasonry. Some may come as a total surprise and some you may already know but nonetheless,…
