Hello distant cousin:
Wow... quite the history. My g-grandparents Sheldon were also first cousins, both mothers were Crandall (of course) sisters.
It is my understanding that the DAR and SAR, because I tried this with the Sons of the American Revolution, require original genealogical data with "certified copies" of birth, mariage, and death records. On my attempt with the SAR several years ago, they said that if another person has submitted certified documentation for proof down my line, they would accept it up to the point that it was documented (broken off) in my lineage. Then I would have to come up with the rest.
I sat there with the Red and Blue books in my hands and they said the books were not "real genealogy" and looked at me like I did not have anything else to offer. They would not even look at one page of the book. I made several efforts to contact the DAR in Michigan (the SAR would accept the DAR records) with little luck. I tried the query on the website... same thing. So, I put it on the back burner.
Is it your exact line that you are interested in? It sounds like you already have this. I am very interested in hearing about what they accept from your first application. Do you need copies of the green book pages? I believe the copyright would not permit copying, but I'll check the inside cover of the green book for that kind of information. If they allow it for genealogical purposes, then I'll see what I can do.
