SAR Genealogy Assistants

SAR Genealogy Assistants are those members of the SAR who offer more "hands-on" help than New Member Helpers. SAR Genealogy Assistants take an active role in researching and compiling SAR applications for new members, who may have limited or no experience in genealogical research or in preparing an application for a lineage society. The degree to which an SAR Genealogy Assistant can assist a potential new member will vary based on the specific needs of the potential new member.

Genealogy Assistants are scattered throughout the country. Not every state has a Genealogy Assistant. Genealogy Assistants may have expertise conducting genealogical research in a particular geographic area, or among a specific ethnic or religious group.

Potential new members may wish to consider the expertise of the Genealogy Assistant and should contact the Genealogy Assistant nearest them. Regardless of his primary expertise, SAR Genealogy Assistants should be able to help most potential new members.

Genealogy Assistants should act within the following guidelines:
