My First DAR meeting

And no, I’m not a member yet. I’m a slacker.

I still need to set aside the time to get my paperwork together and to get it checked and then printed out on the precious paper.:)

I was quite surprised by the meeting.  I’m in Savannah, so I had envisioned old ladies in big, bright-colored hats, sipping tea.  That wasn’t the case.  We did have some refreshments and most of the people were considerably older than me, but no big hats, no huge formalities, and no tea.:)

The meeting was held at the botanical gardens, but naturally nothing was in bloom.  We met in the Civil War Era building on the grounds.

They had a very interesting speaker. He wrote a book about his ancestors who were amongst the first settlers of Savannah.  It made me again wish that I had some roots in this very interesting area.

I’m planning on attending the next meeting and hopefully getting my paperwork turned in before we make our big move to El Paso in June.  Wish me luck!

    Hey, I officially joined in December. It took me about 2 years to find everything I needed…I started from square NONE. ..My Patriot, Abraham Strohm, lived in Lebanon, Pa. I was also thinking it would be all “old gals”, but it is not, and anyone adult woman can join. Our group is made up of ladies who really care about Veterans, and our country, and I think I am really going to like it! It also be the best way to get out East to really look things over…I live in Oklahoma…
    Happy Trails!

    So have you got your application turned in yet? You know, I was talking to another genealogist just the other day about how much time – as chapter registrars – we spend on each new member application. We figured that from start to finish about 40 hours per application. And that was only if it was a good line to begin with.

    Let me know how it is going with your membership adventure!ReplyCancel
