Back on October 1, 2014 we rolled out the Member-Get-A-Member Campaign. Many thanks to those of you who have referred new members, requested a packet to “gift” a membership to a family member, or offered to distribute and share information with others to help us meet our goal. The time is right. Interest in genealogy and access to information about lineage is at an all time high. And, the number of descendants of the Founders exponentially grows with each generation added. You are in a good position to help us spread the word about the benefits of DFAW! Who better to “grow” the organization than YOU who experience the benefits and have a stake in DFAW’s health and vitality. PLEASE FIND A WAY TO HELP MAKE THIS CAMPAIGN A SUCCESS WITH YOUR PARTICIPATION Request your Member-Get-A-Member-Campaign Packet today by Email: DFAW1633@yahoo.com
