Lineage Societies – There is the DAR, SAR, NSCDA and GSMD. Do you know what they all are? Does your family tree have “special people” in it? Revolutionary War heroes related to you? Mayflower passenger descendant? Are you a Colonial Dame? Why should you join a lineage society if you do have these ancestors in your tree? What are the different classifications? What are the different requirements to join? What do lineage Societies do? Come to this meeting to find out about the different lineage societies, and why have they become so popular. These three speakers should be able to answer most any question you were afraid to ask.
