The public is invited to attend and learn how to research their ancestry. For additional information, contact Jacob Bennett Chapter Regent, Lucy Whitmarsh at 575-574-8394.

Now living in Las Cruces, Sarah has called Silver City her home town since 1968. She started doing genealogy research in 1983, beginning with an introductory class sponsored by her local genealogy club.  She’s been actively researching ever since. Her personal research has taken her to many different locations both inside and outside the United States.

She is a member of a variety of lineage societies, some of which include the Mayflower Society, the Order of the Crown of Charlemagne, and Descendants of the Illegitimate Sons and Daughter of the Kings of Britain, commonly called the Royal Bastards.

She is most active in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, or DAR.  She has taken four genealogy education courses offered to DAR members and is a Volunteer Field Genealogist for the Jacob Bennett Chapter DAR in Silver City, the chapter that is hosting this workshop. Additional DAR service includes having served as chapter registrar for three different chapters, state registrar for the NM State Organization DAR, Organizing Regent of the Blue Danube Chapter in Vienna, Austria, and currently serving as the state Organizing Secretary in New Mexico.

If you encounter this problem, click on the title of the article you want to read and it will take you to that article's page, which shows only that article without any intruders.

If you are a frequent visitor, you might not mind fewer articles per page, but if you only come once in a while, you likely want to see more articles to browse. Write me at editor@grantcountybeat.com to let me know your feelings on this issue.
