Program for April 21, 2014: Pat McFall, State DAR Leader to Speak at Edmond
Ms. Pat McFall, State Regent of Oklahoma Daughters of American Revolution (DAR), will present a program at the Monday, April 21st meeting of the Edmond Genealogical Society (EGS) at the Edmond Museum. Her program will cover researching the DAR.org website online and preparing applications for membership. The DAR organization, founded in 1890 in Washington DC, is a volunteer non-political, lineage-based women’s service organization that promotes historic preservation, education, and patriotism. The male counterpart is the SAR, founded in 1889.
“The DAR recently started accepting a limited amount of DNA as part of the application process, and I will talk about that, too,” McFall said.
Regent McFall, who lives in Edmond, has served eight years as a Genealogy Consultant for National DAR. She enjoyed leading genealogical tours to London, Scotland and Ireland, and has researched in many other large repositories, including those in our nation’s capitol.
“The most fun I remember was connecting my mother-in-law with an ancestor who founded Kew Gardens in London,” McFall said. The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, London, grows more species than any other garden in the world and has a long and distinguished history. The gardens really began when King Henry VII moved his court to Richmond Palace in the summer months and nearby Kew village flourished. Since 1840, Kew Park has been open to the public and is a popular tourist attraction. The EGS meets on the third Monday evening of each month, with speakers on subjects of interest to genealogists; membership is open to anyone interested in historical or genealogical research.
