I am doing research for a history of the Lockwood/St John/Cressy families of New England. Each family is chock full of Patriots, and most already have an Ancestor Number in the GRS, but some do not. One in particular was installed as a lieutenant in the Rhode Island militia on May 1st, 1784, but does not have a GRS Ancestor Number. He has no military record prior to that date. This made me curious. My basic question is: What are the date range service parameters and requirements in order to be bonafide as a Patriot?
I received my number April 5, 2016 and still have not received my handbook or Certificate. I have called many times, leaving messages, emails and faxes. No one returns my calls or emails. Does anyone know how I can get my Certificate and Handbook? My Certificate means the world to me. Want to hang mine up, along side with my mother's. Any advise would be so very helpful.

I am outraged that in our country, as great as it is, that an so-called American manufacturer would be allowed to create with the intent to sell "Terroist" toys to our children. A sad day indeed. http://www.someonesbones.com/blog/jihad-joe-isis-toys-draw-public-scrutiny/

I received my number April 5, 2016 and still have not received my certificate or handbook. I have called, left many messages, emails and faxes and have not had any replies. It is heartbreaking, I really want my certificate. I plan to hang it up with my mother's. Does anyone have any advise on what I am to do now?
C-SPAN’s American History TV recently featured the DAR Museum exhibition “Remembering the American Revolution: 1776-1890” in its series American Artifacts.

My Mother in Law, Mrs. Shirley Workman Johnson, was a member of the DAR before her death. She was in charge of helping new applicants search for their genealogies. I inherited her collection of books regarding genealogies from New York and New England. I would like to know if anyone such as the Library in Washington DC or anyone local to Upstate NY would like to have this collection of books. They are a great resource and she would hate to have these texts go somewhere they would not be helpful to the DAR. My local library is not interested in taking them and would most likely either sell them in their book sale or throw them out. You can respond to me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
