I am very excited to be starting the process of joining the DAR. I finally put in an inquiry and got the ball rolling.
A very sweet and helpful 91 year old lady contacted me and I will be meeting with her in the next couple of weeks so that she can go over the paperwork with me. I can’t wait to meet her!
I have at least 5 ancestors that qualify (and I’m sure more that I don’t know of yet). So, I have to decide which ancestor to use for my application.
I had originally thought that I was going to use Patrick Cavit, on my father’s side, but I recently changed my mind and have decided that I’m going to go with Nathan Britton/Nathaniel Brittain – on my mother’s side.
Just this past week, another Brittain researcher contacted me and she happens to be going through the DAR application process also. So, I’m happy to have someone else who is using the same line as I am (at least for a few of the generations.)
Here is my DAR line that I will be using:
Nathaniel Britton/Brittain (who died in 1776 in VA while in service)
Milton Price Brittain
Mathilda Jane Brittain
Theodore Francis Sanchez
Donald Arthur Sanchez (my grandfather)
Have any of you joined the DAR? How long did the process take before you became a member? I know that it’s going to take some hard work getting all of the copies of needed proof, but it will definitely be worth it in the end!!
