I met up with someone last week from my DAR chapter who has been helping me with my application. Thanks to my dad I finally have all of my paperwork to send it in. Our membership chairwoman has been so patient with me but after the July 4th parade my paperwork will be submitted! By the October meeting I should be officially in! I'm so excited.
There have been many obstacles in my way both genealogy-wise as well as life in general. However on a happy note, once I'm in I plan on finishing up the additional 5 lines I've found so far and submit those. I'm in no rush to get those in but I would be honored to have all of them recognized.

Malinda Clouse nee Voorhees, 4X Great Grandmother

Thru this link I have meant cousins I never knew as well as received land deeds from a wonderful volunteer. I haven't sorted thru all my information however I'm truly blessed with the family I've found.
I'm just beginning my journey into my family's history and I already have the title Family Historian. My journey was started for my daughter. One day I hope to present her with the story of her past. I started this blog to keep all of my findings, thoughts, musings and stories related to my findings as well as genealogy in general. If in the process a distant relative happens upon this and it helps them as well that is just an added bonus!
To make it easier to search posts, Surnames will be labeled. This is a work in progress so please bear with me.
