After months of filling out reams of paper work and tons and tons of research, I was inducted into the DAR. A dream of my mother's! MC and my Brother Bobby accompanied me to the swearing in and luncheon.
MC and the Local Registrar did all the work! All I did was freak out at each and every hold up
and pass information back and forth between Connie, the Registrar, and MC! My brothers were also a big help in finding family information and certificates. They all deserve the credit for making this day possible. You can't imagine all the documentation and work involved . My Thanks to ALL!
MC developed a love for the research work while working on my lineage . He is now doing voluntary "Indexing" for an online genealogy research site. He loves the work, spending many hours every day at his computer! I even tease him that it has become an addiction! He also has become a member of the Genealogy Club here in Shell Point, and loves sharing all the information he has found. I have been trying for days to make up a new title out of MC and came up with "Master Computer "Indexer".
I have to confess that I "did it again"! I failed to check the time for the affair. I went by the time of last month's meeting and in doing so I was a half hour late! I did make a Grand Entrance to say the least! But somehow arrived just in time to be sworn in with the other new members!
