Overcoming the Boulders on the Way to the Cemetery - DAR Real Daughters with Jerri McCoy
A few years ago I worked on a special project for the Daughters of the American Revolution - locating and documenting the burial places for 767 special members called DAR Real Daughters, whose fathers were actually in the Revolutionary War. As a result of that project, I became familiar with many boulders in my path on the way to the cemetery. My hope is that you are not stopping with the death date and location for the people in your family history, but where possible, are taking the next logical step to find their final resting place. The methods I used to get around these boulders during this project are presented because they might be helpful to you, as genealogists, as you research your own families.
