My father has recently become a member of the Sons of the Revolution and Simon Record is his patriot. My father has alzheimers butbhe has been asked to share information about Simon Record at one of his meetings so I am searching for information for him. Can you share any info with me?
I hope another can answer you question -
this profile has came to my caretaking as a result of the merging of the 'big tree' GENI demands that we connect to thus they take us all way out of our initial tree our ancestors - your grandparents their siblings who married in the process we also gain control of abandoned trees that others connect to our profiles
i carry out each the the grandparents, their children who married and had children with name of spouses their are some lines I have develed further - the Emery's and hardesty's but i do not choose to chase each and every female spouse of an emery descendants backwards - tho i have chosen to chase every possible Emery descendants down to today whether male or female.
the briggs name does come in as a spouse of one of the Emery ancestors, that besides I do know the noyes and moutlon's also inter mary into the Emery's -
It's very interesting to delve into the lives of our Patriot ancestors. I've been doing that lately as well, and on fact, we have a Project for that:
If you can a little information, such as his SAR # to the profile, I can add him - and you, if you like - to help learn more.
Jill your first step is to add those numbers to the Simon Record profile by editing the oveview. If you have copies of the documents the DAR and SAR number reference you can add them to the profile as documents.
Descriptions on how to do this are here
If there's an image to add to the profile - tombstone, perhaps? - that would be great.
What we're after is building the facts within the profile your Dad can use as a visual description of his Patriot. Nothing like show and tell to make a meeting come alive!
Erica "the Disconnectrix" Howton IT IS AGAINST THE RULES and regulations of the dar to post any copy of the DAR papers on line by any one -
Limitations to Use of the Record Copy You Receive
Copies of NSDAR membership applications or supplemental applications may not be resold, digitized, posted online, or published in any form. They are for the sole use of the person ordering the copy and may of course be cited or quoted in publications using appropriate citations methods. See American Genealogical Research at the DAR, Washington, D. C., Chapter 14, “ Citing, Quoting, and Reproducing DAR Sources” for more information.
also certain #'s are no longer acceptable as use in documentation for filing applications on dar paper's - i can;t not lay hand's on the begining $ that is acceptable - but the was made known to me ny a Maryland certified Genealogist who
Thus any DAR papers that are posted on Geni should be removed from any and all genI rpofiles because you are going AGAINST their policy - you may give them away privately but NOT OVER The INTERNET AS POSTED documents
sorry the way you wrote it above "If you have copies of the documents the DAR and SAR number reference you can add them to the profile as documents. " to me this implies that you are telling whom ever its is acceptable to scan and upload the actual DAR paper - and remember people DO NOT LIKE TO READ - they only read what they want to read - overlooking all other information provided - guess I am just an old stick in the mud
