PROUD to be a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution

Today was the big day!
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".

Displaying PATTYDARSWEARINGIN.jpg 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!

So Proud!
