The United States Daughters of 1812 Wants You!
July 06, 2013
The United States Daughters of 1812 are looking forward to seeing you at this year’s Membership Workshop. Last year, four new members were inducted! The local James Kearney Chapter of the USD 1812 will be holding this workshop at the Midwest Genealogy Center on Wednesday, July 24, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. The main focus of this workshop is finding the evidence necessary for membership.
Membership is available to women eighteen and over who can offer satisfactory proof that they are lineal descendants of an ancestor, who, during the period of 1784-1815 inclusive, rendered civil, military, or naval service to our country, rendered material aid to the U.S. Army or Navy, or who participated in the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Try this great search aid to look for your ancestor and begin the journey.
The United States Daughters of 1812, founded in 1892, is a volunteer women's service organization dedicated to preserving and increasing knowledge of the history of the American people by the preservation of documents and relics, marking historic locations, recording family histories and traditions, celebrating patriotic anniversaries, teaching, and emphasizing the heroic deeds of the civil, military, and naval life of those who molded this country between the close of the American Revolution and the close of the War of 1812.
