    In my line of work, I need to spell a Masonic office. Lodges and websites are revealing 2 different spellings. Which is correct?? TYLER or TILER ??

    Thanks a million, Rick

    A man can only go as high as the 3rd Degree. Everything after that is an honorary degree.

    Terry, I don't know what it is like in your state(it should be the same) but in Pennsylvania we submit a petition and if accepted we get into the process of earning degrees 1 through 3. At this point you are a full fledged Mason. Degrees 4 through 32 are voluntary not honorary, and you pay to join the consistory or other masonic organization that you prefer. Like the Shriners. The 33rd degree is givenor I should say bestowed for being an outstandidng citizen and person. Gerald Ford is an example of a 33rd degree Mason. Mike

    OK, back to being confused... So It varies ?? I do Va., AZ, Ca. ,Nv. , WA. ,Or., Ny., well, alot. That's what I was referring to, was that one website said one thing, and another was different. Thought with some of you guys being Masons, I could find a member with the " Super Duper Grand supreme Book" that might clear it up. Now one title he gave me was misspelled I am sure... He had STEWART and I figure he meant STEWARD. Or is that a Jurisdictional thing also??

    In Illinois it is spelled Tiler. A Steward is a Rod Officer, and Stewart makes the shotmakers. I bet the difference might be between whether a jurisdiction is F.A.M versus A.F.A.M. 2B1 ask 1. Rick Gibbs
