DAR

When I first started researching my family tree, I had one goal – trace my heritage with the goal of joining the Daughters of the American Revolution.  Well, almost 10 years have past and I am *this* close to having the proof.    Of course,getting the proof will probably take awhile.  I have to get will and probate records. I also have to deal with a name change.  Explaining that through proof should be interesting.  The revolutionary war records spells my ancestor as “Firestine” and most of the documents I have state it as “Firestone”.  Fun!  Anyway, it will probably take another year, but I feel that my goal is within reach!  At least, it’s closer than it was a decade ago.
