Lineage Research Workshops

Share this Post

The Zebulon Pike Chapter, NSDAR ancestors include over 200 patriots representing 14 states, including all of the original 13 colonies and Vermont, the first state added to the newly formed United States (1791). A number of our members have been trained in genealogical research and know how to dig deep for important ancestral information.

There will be several Lineage Research Workshops this year. These workshops will guide you through the basics of genealogy research. Participants will learn how to document their own lineage and how to share that information with family and friends. The workshop is open to the public and is free.

The workshops are designed to assist those who are interested in finding American Revolutionary patriots in their family tree. If individuals have not started to collect any family documentation, they are encouraged to come and learn about the steps needed to document lineage. Experienced researchers are welcome.

Remember the days of old;
consider the generations long past.
Deuteronomy 32:7

What To Bring

To prepare for the workshop, please fill out as much of the DAR Worksheet and Documentation Check List as you can. Save the worksheet on your computer and work on it there. The information will not be saved if typed in on the DAR website. You should also bring any genealogy documentation you have collected so far: birth, marriage and death certificates (where applicable) for you, your parents, and grandparents, and any other family documentation to show your lineage. A laptop or tablet is helpful, but not required.

To forget one’s ancestors is to be
a brook without a source,
a tree without a root.
