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.

    Good luck, Jenn! My Genealogy Society just did a class on SAR so SAR & DAR is fresh in my mind! My family is far too new in the US to have a chance and I think Rick’s side is too new for SAR, but he stands a better chance than I do! Keep us updated! :)ReplyCancel

    I will definitely keep you updated! It’s going to be a long process, I can already tell. Where did most of your family come from Cherie? I have some “newer” Americans – my Grandma’s family was from Sweden, but I have many lines that were here in the 1600s also. It’s kind of nice to have some of each. :)ReplyCancel
