Genealogist Opening at NSDAR

The following is from Tristan Tolman at ICAPGEN.

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution has an immediate
full-time opening for a Genealogist in the Registrar’s Office.  Primary
responsibilities focus on examining and evaluating lineage-based
information provided on DAR membership applications or supplemental
applications, and corresponding with prospective members or Chapter
Registrar if further documentation is needed.

Previous experience in conducting genealogical research is required. The
successful candidate must be able to analyze and evaluate lineage
information, be detail oriented and resolve issues from conflicting data,
and be able to write clear and concise letters explaining difficult
research problems, including providing suggestions to the applicant for
further research.  Proficiency in Microsoft Word, including the ability to
adapt quickly to proprietary databases, is essential.

Limited overtime hours possible during board weeks, (April, June, October
and December) however, must be available to work overtime hours during one
week of annual meeting.

Please send a cover letter and resume including a writing sample and a
sample or portfolio of genealogy/family research performed, to:
