Once upon a time, my mother mentioned that she wished she knew more about her birth family. Her parents had both died when she was young and she had been adopted. Many years later, my daughter became interested in genealogy and traced her roots back to a patriot on her dadís side. I never dreamed that I would ever be able to do that because of the adoption, and my dadís family immigrated from Germany in the 1900s. But dreams really do come true and we were able to not only find a Revolutionary War patriot, but through the same line, went back to the Mayflower. It wasnít easy, but it was possible.

Can you trace your ancestry back to an American Revolutionary patriot? Are you looking for a DAR chapter to join or transfer to? Are you new in your area and don't know many people? Are you looking for an opportunity to honor those who established our country or have fought to keep it free? Would you like to find all of this in a warm and friendly atmosphere, where you will feel at ease? Ensign Thomas Huling Chapter is a welcoming group in the Killeen, Texas, area where you will feel part of the chapter, with an opportunity to find your own voice in DAR. I am sure with our many programs in education, history, genealogy, children's projects, women's issues, oral histories, and veterans, you will find something to spark your interest.

Our chapter meets monthly on the third Tuesday, except October, December, February, and May, with summers off. Contact us to visit as our guest.
