An application workshop for DAR members and prospective members was held in Loudon. The workshop was sponsored by the General William Lenoir Chapter, Joan Shrader, regent.
This was a chance for prospective members to learn how to research their Revolutionary War ancestor correctly. Members attending learned how to search for supplemental Patriots. Supplementals are additional patriots that are in the members family.
The leader of the workshop was Pam McConnell, who is state chairman of the TSDAR volunteer genealogist and a member of the Nancy Ward Chapter in Chattanooga.
Theses workshops help researchers to know what to look for and what to exclude as they trace their family history. It is also a time for networking with other members. Participants came from three regions of the TSDAR, Cherokee, Sequatchie and Appalachian.
