So You Are Being Proposed for Membership in a Hereditary Society; What Is a Document?
Genealogical Society of PA, Aug 1, 2007 - 7 pages
Combines two articles published by The Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania in their ¿Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine¿. The ever increasing interest in genealogy has brought many queries about joining one or more of the hereditary patriotic societies from people who discover that they might have some qualifying ancestors. Often prospective members are confused, & even some of the societies are confused as to their own administrative procedures for new candidates & what documentation is required to prove the lineage. The Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania through its Committee of Hereditary & Patriotic Societies recommends certain standards for admittance procedure & genealogical documentation.
