I am soooo! happy you haven't sent in your application either. Poor Marge (our local DAR Person) has been after me for a few years as I have quite a few. I just haven't got the info together. Now I don't feel like such a failure! Love your news letter and blog, etc.
We ought to challenge each other to actually complete one app and get it approved! That would knock the socks off of the likes of poor Marge!
Okay! I'll take the bait!
We’re in luck, just when we decided to commit to this DAR application process, up steps a new friend to help us along the way. Read on…

Subject: Your Blog on Your DAR Application
I began reading your blog recently, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I saw your posting regarding your
DAR application. If you would like some help completing your application, I would be happy to assist you.
The Internet has drastically changed the speed at which the line of descent from a Revolutionary War patriot ancestor can be identified and documented. I have helped dozens of people join the DAR and SAR in the last few years, including researching and documenting my husband's 38 proven Revolutionary War patriot ancestors. Most of the people I work with have no idea about their ancestry beyond their grandparents or great-grandparents. Of course, they get very excited when learn that they descend from a Revolutionary War patriot. If all the necessary vital records are ordered in a timely fashion, it is now possible to become a new member in a matter of months of starting the research.
Based on my experiences, I have developed a free online tutorial on identifying and documenting descent
from a Revolutionary War patriot for eligibility in the DAR or SAR.
Researching Your Revolutionary War Patriot Ancestor
Again - please let me know if you would like some help completing your application. DAR is a wonderful
organization, and I really enjoy helping people become a part of it.
Keep up the great work with your blog!
