I have been researching for approximately 30 some years and try to get documentation, i.e. birth/death/cemetery/postcards/diaries/letters/census/EllisIsland records and have been accepted to Daughters of the American Colonists. One ancestor lacks a birth date, death date and burial site although I think I know where he was born; but I have no proof. I phoned someone that applied to DAR with this great, great grandfathers birth place and I asked where I could locate that particular information, she said, I really didn't do the research, my mother did so I copied it. She was accepted minus the proof. I called the DAR chapter and they were upset with me because I mentioned the lack of birth documentation. To each his own but I will not do that.
