Comments on: Where Were Your Ancestors on July 4th, 1776? http://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/2013/07/01/where-were-your-ancestors-on-july-4th-1776/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=where-were-your-ancestors-on-july-4th-1776 The official blog of Ancestry Mon, 20 Oct 2014 12:01:08 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.5.2 By: Laurahttp://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/2013/07/01/where-were-your-ancestors-on-july-4th-1776/#comment-107868 Laura Sat, 20 Jul 2013 16:25:38 +0000 http://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/?p=10772#comment-107868 Perhaps you can pass on to Ancestry.com’s records department that there is a bit of a flaw in their enhanced views of the SAR records. Using the basic viewer, a user can forward to the next page of the record to see the inside of the application (since SAR records are multiple pages). Using the enhanced viewer there is no way to forward to the next page and it is the second page that provides the best information in these records since it shows the generational tracings.

So far I have gotten back to 1805, with my great, great grandfather George Washington Mitchell, Sr.. I know several of his sons were in the civil war, there are pictures in Stuart, Virginia library of the reunion around the turn of the century. Would this help with DAR? Also as you are a Mitchell as well are we possibly related? Just curious.

The son, Samuel Dunwoody, was 1st Lt in Army; father was eligible due to helping army with supplies, etc., I think. What is the best way to find out which lady or ladies applied for their memberships using my ancestors and which lines they descend from so I know where I tie in? What if the woman(en) is/are now deceased? How much information is the DAR willing to give a prospective member? A friend in our local DAR chapter tried to help me ask DAR a long time ago, but what we received wasn’t of much help.

One who has applied and already passed away. Or a ancestor who is a Son of American Revolution. what do you about this. It is a direct line. It may be a cousin or uncle or Aunt but not a second or third cousin. What doIknow there is documentation and I have seen them on list while studying my geneaology. What do I do first.

As the Genealogist for the California SAR, an SAR Chapter Registrar for 10 years and a CAR Society Registrar for 6 years, I thought Anne’s “useful tips” were very appropriate. If you are interested in membership in these organizations, contact your local Chapter/Society registrar early on as they can provide you information, advice, guidance and direct you to sources that may simplify your research and documentation efforts toward a successful membership application.

DAR dues are not $275.30 per year. Nor are SAR dues.

I,m looking into a 5 th grandmother who was born approximatly 1770 in York Pa. A Quaker so family legend has said. The Colonial Dames are a wonderful organization. Check it out.
