Week 7 – Historical Documents

Which historical document in your possession are you happy to have? How did you acquire this item? What does it reveal about your ancestors?

This challenge runs from Sunday, February 12, 2012 through Saturday, February 18, 2012.

In recent years, I have discovered that a number of my ancestors fought in the American Revolution. A distant cousin of mine documented this with the DAR. While I must connect a few dots, the DAR allows piggybacking on another daughter’s research. I happily downloaded this item after paying a few bucks. This granted me access to these records for a week.

After downloading, I took a giant leap forward in my linking myself to my ancestor.
