TOPIC:  Requirements to Join Lineage Societies: "The Mayflower Heritage & History Society"; and the "Daughters of the American Revolution"

So you believe you have found an ancestor who fought in the American Revolutionary War. You have heard about the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and/or the Sons of the American Revolution and would like to join their societies. What steps do you need to take? 


You may also believe that you have located a direct line to a Mayflower passenger. How does one join the Mayflower Society? 


Char will give a little background about each of these organizations, offer research tips for how to locate and prove your own lineage, as well as outline the documentation needed to join each of these societies.
