Proving a new patriot.

Today I was very excited to have a new American Revolutionary patriot proven.  What makes Obededom Sanders even more special is that he also is new to the DAR Patriot Rolls, meaning I was the first to prove his service.  This means so much to me and my DAR sisters because it means his sacrifice and service has not been forgotten and he'll be forever remembered as a patriot for the founding of this great country.

I found Obed when I was looking for information on a different person. It goes to show that having a plan in your research is critical but sometimes you just need to cruise off your path because you never know what you'll find.


4th of July is a time to celebrate and remember

The 4th of July is the greatest celebration of American independence we have!  On this date, our fore fathers (with lots of help from the women and children of the day) officially declared independence from Britain.  What a bold and brave statement.  There were 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence.  Do you know if you are related to one of them?

The Daughters of the American Revolution Continental Congress is an extraordinary and inspiring experience.  While back in Washington, D.C., I was able to conduct family ancestry research in the incredible DAR library.
