Subject: DAR genealogies for the GARNETT family--PART ONE
Date: Sun, 3 Jan 1999 09:34:13 EST


One of the little known and infrequently used sources of genealogy information
about prominent American families can be found buried in the library of the
National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Washington,
D.C.

For family historians studying the GARNETT family, the difficulty in using the
DAR records has always been firstly, to gain access to the library's
information files and secondly to locate those specific records that pertain
to the GARNETT family's various lines of descent.

To overcome these drawbacks, I have just completed a full extraction and
transcription of all the DAR genealogies that contain references to the
GARNETT family and their key relations.

Since these transcriptions will no doubt be of tremendous assistance to others
who are researching these same families, I have decided to post all my DAR
transcriptions on the GARNETT-List.

Because of the size limitations on the files that can be transmitted through
the rootsweb server, I have had to separate these DAR transcriptions into a
number of separate parts. You can recombine these parts together into one
document by simply doing a "copy and paste" from the separate e-mail messages
into a single word processing program file which you can view or print off-
line at your convenience.

I have not yet arranged these transcriptions by individual family
line---geneally speaking, they are currently in the sequence that I pulled
them from the various DAR volumes. So you will need to hunt through the
listings to find the records that belong to the particular family line that
you are researching. Each listing provides the name of the DAR member who
submitted the original pedigree, the name of that person's spouse [if
married], and the direct line(s) of descent that connects the DAR member to
their revolutionary ancestor. The listings also provide a brief synopsis of
each ancestor(s) participation in the American Revolution.

Drop me a line and let me know if you have found these DAR transcriptions of
interest and help to you in constructing your own family's history. Preparing
these extractions and transcriptions has entailed a great deal of work for
me...and I hope they will be of some use to other "Garnett gatherers".
