If you’ve always wanted to know how to join the Daughters of the American Revolution and have been intimidated by the application process, here’s your chance to get all your questions about the DAR answered for free.
Christina Bannon, Regent of the Chicago Chapter of the DAR, will be on hand at the Newberry to provide lookups in the DAR’s database and to offer advice on the application process. She has won National Awards for her genealogy and membership work as a Genealogy Consultant and Volunteer Genealogist with the DAR. Christina focuses on improving the quality of applications submitted and has recruited over 130 women into DAR membership since 2009.
Christina will be available in the second floor General Reading Room between 11 am and 4 pm. Appointments are not required but are helpful. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you don’t have a current Newberry reader’s card, stop at the third floor to obtain one. Ask at the circulation or genealogy reference desks for Christina’s location.
Christina will be available on the following Fridays in 2013:
