After some medical setbacks, it has taken me awhile to get back into my genealogy, but I've made some real progress over the past several weeks. One of the things I've had on my bucket list is to complete my application to qualify for the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution). Well, last week, I was able to cross that my bucket list. I traced my lineage back with all of the necessary documentation to my Revolutionary War Patriot, Miles Oakley. My application went in Wednesday, March 22, and my understanding is that it will take about 3-4 months to hear back. As Miles was already listed as a DAR patriot, I only had to link back to the person who became a member using Miles. The chapter I applied under was a lot more particular than the chapter I had started to work with in Fresno. This chapter wanted everything better documented all the way back to Miles. It was good though, as I learned some good organizational techniques and more about early colonial records.
