      Demystifying Lineage Society Applications
                                          with Linda Longley


1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.  How do I start the process?

  •     How much does it cost?
  •     What proof is needed for each generation?
  •     What to submit and what not to submit?
  •     If all else fails – how do I hire a researcher?

A case study will be presented and we will review the "help sheet" given to each applicant when they begin the process.

3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.  Questions and Answers

PLEASE NOTE: This is not a workshop to complete your papers. It is a day to clarify what is needed and how to organize your application and proof. When joining a lineage society, you are responsible for researching and supplying the proof needed to complete your application.

Class size is limited to 30 participants.  Register early to confirm your seat.

CGS members are admitted for free. Non-members fee is $20.00* and can be applied towards a CGS membership the day of the class.

 Pre-registration is required. 

Registration confirmations will be sent to the first 30 participants who register. Additional names will be collected and placed on a waiting list in case of cancellations.

Walk-ins will not be admitted.

*Course fee is non-refundable.
