Jane Gregga – Available DAR Resources

Description: The Lineage database of the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is free and open to the public. The database houses over 7 million American family trees, all of which have been certified by genealogists throughout the history of the DAR.

Jane Gregga has been a DAR member for 18 years and is the current chapter Regent of the Eli Skinner Chapter in the Arlington Heights area. She recently became credentialed as a Volunteer Field Genealogist for the society and is on a mission to acquaint other genealogists with the vast digital resources of the DAR. In partnership with the Eli Skinner Chapter, Jane is also the location coordinator for Wreaths Across America at historic Elk Grove Cemetery in Elk Grove Village, IL. Jane learned about the DAR from her maternal grandmother and was fortunate to have other family members who were interested in keeping family history alive. Jane is the mother of 3 sons and grandmother to 9 wonderful children.

We will also have time for an "Open Mic" discussion of anything you have on your mind...
