Volunteer Field Genealogist Workshop

I am now available to present the National Society Daughters of American Revolution volunteer field genealogist workshops.  The workshop will help anyone who is interested in joining DAR, complete their application or Registrar’s some good information to help prospective members submit an application that is approved the first time it is submitted.

I joined 40 ladies at NSDAR for the 3 day seminar and learned so much about DAR and the folks that review these applications.  There are some very good resources for proving lineage.  Sometimes the information is not there to be found so a “preponderance of evidence” must be used for the proof.

Anyone who enjoys research will enjoy the workshop or course in Washington DC.

Snedekerville School No. 3 Bell At Historical Society

Today Al and I returned the Snedekerville (PA) School No. 3 bell to Bradford County.  The bell was in Grandma White’s house for many years until it was given to Grandpa White’s nephew, Bob Spencer in Wallingford PA.  Bob and Mid used the bell for many years, then gave it to their daughter who has now given the bell back to me.  I thought the most fitting place to put the bell is back in Bradford County.  The Bradford County Historical Society was happy to get something for their museum from Snedekerville.  If anyone has anything from Sned that they would like to contribute, please notify the Historical Society.  They have a wonderful museum in the former Bradford County Prison.  Their genealogical collections are equally as terrific.  Check their website for visiting hours and information about their collections.  http://www.bradfordhistory.com
