Working on my DAR line.

Last week, I met with the sweetest little lady in her 90’s.  She has been a member of the DAR for over 60 years. Wow!

I now have the paperwork I need to fill in for my application – and I have a lot of work to do.

I’m realizing that there are many simple documents that I don’t have.  Things I’ve overlooked because I already had the date.

I called my mom and asked her to look through her things to see if she had certificates for her parents, since she ended up with my grandma’s papers.  I may have to order them instead…

I have been on an ordering frenzy.  Birth certificates.  Marriage certificates.  Wills and Probate Records.  I can’t wait until the documents start appearing in my mailbox.  It’s kind of like Christmas. 🙂

I’m hoping that I’m able to find everything that I need to prove my line.  Luckily, I have two ancestors that are fairly close on my tree, so if I can’t find the documents for one, perhaps I can do the other instead.
