I did the DAR

Well, I posted a while back that I was dithering about whether or not to join the DAR, Daughters of the American Revolution.  My biggest obstacle was that I wasn't sure about their genealogy, it didn't correspond to what I have about my ancestor.  Since I believe that I have quite a few ancestors who were involved in the Revolution I don't feel like I cheated my way in, I just need to add them to my patriot list.  My paperwork was submitted some months ago and today I took my oath and now I am a full fledged member. 

I know some people think that lineage societies are snobbish and exclusionary, but hey I can't join the Ladies Baptist Guild or the Aggie Mom Support Group or the Polish American Society.  I also can't join the Mayflower Society or the Daughter's of the Texas Revolution, and that's okay with me.
