Upon accepting her award from the Six Flags Chapter, Jeanne spoke of the importance of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution in her own genealogical research.  Since members of NSDAR are obliged to trace their lineage to an ancestor who helped contribute to securing the independence of the US, many are experts in genealogy.  There is also have an extensive database on their website,

These two generous Fort Worth NSDAR chapters give scholarships in the spring to outstanding female history students.
