Distelfink Sippschaft ("Goldfinch Kindred" in Deitsch/Pennsylvania German) is an Urglaawe kindred with members in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.

The Heathen Freehold Society of British Columbia (formerly the Asatru Freehold) was founded in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, during the spring of 2002. Since then, the Freehold has grown to include members from all over the province.
Our greatest purpose is to assist in the contemporary revival of the elder culture and religion of the ancient Germanic, Teutonic and Nordic tribes.
We are also dedicated to studying the many varieties of Germanic Heathenism which have arisen all over the world in the last half century, including Asatru, Odinism, Theodism, Forn Sed, and others, and teaching what we learn to interested others.
The Freehold is a confederation of independent Heathen individuals, households, kindreds and tribes who have united around this historic purpose.
Having recently incorporated as a non-profit society, the Heathen Freehold Society is pioneering where no Canadian Heathen have gone before.
Official membership is $20.00 Canadian per person per year. Full membership grants you a vote and the opportunity to run for office, but while it is encouraged, it is not required.

Thor's Oak Kindred is an inclusive organization dedicated to the practice of the Ásatrú religion in Chicago. We come together to honor the Norse gods and goddesses, the spirits of the land, and the departed people who inspire us.
Since 2016, we have been building and nurturing a face-to-face community of practitioners in Chicago and the greater midwestern region for ritual celebration, group events, and mutual support.
Our members are kindred by choice and have chosen to embrace each other as family. We are proud of our diversity, and we stand against all discrimination on the basis of race, sex, orientation, identity, origin, ancestry, age, or ability.
