This Lineage Research Workshops are for members and prospective members. This is a great way to meet members of the Zebulon Pike Chapter who have a passion for DAR and for Genealogy.
The Part 1 of the workshop features a presentation made by one of our chapter Genies (a volunteer genealogist) to share resources and tips for genealogy research. Part 2 of the workshop focuses on assisting prospective members with research and applications as well as assisting members with supplemental applications.
The Zebulon Pike Chapter has 20 Genies that have completed DAR Genealogy Research Classes (GEP) or the DAR Volunteer Field Genealogy course and are anxious to assist prospective members find their patriots and complete their applications!
