My Brother Bobby was my Guest yesterday.  He gave me a very special gift before the ceremony began.    I wanted to share it with everyone in a separate manner in addition to the original Post and MC found a way for me to get it on the blog!!!  MC is a Master Computer guy!!!

This is an actual booklet of the Constitution  and By-Laws of the National Society of the Daughters Of The American Revolution from 1914

This means so much to me and is extra special because it is the year of my Dad's birth!
Thank you Bobby.  Thank you so very much

PROUD to be a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution

Today was the big day!
After months of filling out reams of paper work and tons and tons of research, I was inducted into the DAR.  A dream of my mother's!   MC and my Brother Bobby accompanied me to the swearing in and luncheon.

MC and the Local Registrar did all the work!  All I did was freak out at  each and every  hold up
 and pass information back and forth between Connie, the Registrar, and MC!  My brothers were also a big help in finding family information and certificates.   They all deserve the credit for making this day possible.   You can't imagine all the documentation and work involved .  My Thanks to ALL!

MC developed a love for the research work while working on my lineage .  He is now doing voluntary "Indexing" for an online genealogy research site.  He loves the work, spending many hours every day at his computer!   I even tease him that it has become an addiction!   He also has become a member of the Genealogy Club here in Shell Point, and loves sharing all the information he has found.  I have been trying for days to make up a new title out of MC and came up with "Master Computer "Indexer".

Displaying PATTYDARSWEARINGIN.jpg I have to confess that I "did it again"!   I failed to check the time for the affair.  I went by the time of last month's meeting and in doing so I was a half hour late!   I did make a Grand Entrance to say the least!  But somehow arrived just in time to be sworn in with the other new members!

 Me and Connie

MC, Me and Connie

So Proud!
