DAR Will Hold Free Genealogy Work Session

DAR Will Hold Free Genealogy Work Session

The Jackson-Madison Chapter of National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) will hold a free genealogy work session on Tuesday, February 7, 2017, at the downtown Jackson-Madison County Library from 4:00 until 6:00 p.m.  This free work session is open to the public.  This is not a class so you may attend the entire session or drop in for a few minutes.  Chapter members will be on hand to assist with your family genealogy research.  Please bring any documents or research that you've already done on your own, so that your next area of research may be determined.

    The DAR genealogy work session will be held from 4:00 until 6:00 p.m.  This will allow additional time for family researchers to use the Tennessee Room for continued research before the Library closes at 8:00 p.m.

    The public is invited to attend, especially those working on lineage research for membership in DAR, SAR (Sons of the America Revolution) or CAR (Children of the American Revolution).  For more information, contact chapter registrar, Alice Holtin, at 731- 608-6852 or at ayholtin@gmail.com. 

    Jackson-Madison Chapter NSDAR offers these free work sessions from 4:00--6:00 p.m. at the downtown Library on the first Tuesday evening of each month.

     The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to promote patriotism, preserve American history, and support better education for our nation’s children.  Its members are descended from the patriots who won American independence during the Revolutionary War.  With more than 175,000 members in approximately 3,000 chapters worldwide, DAR is one of the world’s largest and most active service organizations.  DAR is non-partisan and non-political, and welcomes any woman, regardless of race, religion or ethnic background, who can prove lineage to a Revolutionary War patriot.

     Jackson-Madison Chapter NSDAR was chartered in April 1901, and is one of the oldest and most active chapters in the state of Tennessee.
