Lanes in Bedford Co PA - DAR Application (not my line)

Our John Lane Sr. (ca.1780-1844) was mistakenly (we think) included in a DAR Application, 
linking him to the wrong Revolutionary Soldier (although his father was supposedly in the Revolutionary War).  Read the files disproving this DAR Application and see the actual documents.  (DAR Application of Emma McKinley Nease for Record of John Lane, Bedford Co., PA) I welcome comments and any researcher's proof either way concerning this issue.

Gratefully Accepted....

  Everyone in involved in genealogy is disgusted with the rising costs of doing this hobby.  And in some areas, costs continue to climb.  Even when you have an exact date of birth/death, or know the exact Book/Volume and page number you want, locations will often charge between $10.00 to $20.00 for ONE Xeroxed Page (which is outrageous!). Other places charge $1.00 per Xerox Copy made on their machine, trying to re-coup at least 95% of every dollar they spend on maintenance and related costs (but, we all know Xeroxes have come down to 0.02 cents to 0.05 cents on most public Xerox machines, and even small libraries only charge 0.25 cents per page).

  The high costs of postage, Xeroxes, travel and gas expenses, book costs, membership costs to societies etc., all make web sites like this one and my primary Washington Co PA website very important.  The more transcripts of original documents that we can access online, the better for everyone,. especially for people who live out of State.  But, in most cases, *someone* initially absorbed the costs to get the information in the first place.  My sister, grandmother and I spent tons of money to get the research materials I am now sharing here.  If you were to get the same records now yourself, they could cost 10 times more for you at today's prices than when I was doing in-person research. 

  Therefore, if you would like to make a donation of appreciation for the items you have found here, I would be very thankful.  You may send by regular mail to the address below, or email me if you would like to use the check-paying system through PayPal (minimum donation at Paypal would need to cover the Paypal fees, please).  Again, thank you very much for helping me to help you.

The background was chosen specifically to emphasize the matriarchal role of women in "the life" of children and families, and the resilience of all the women of southwestern Pennsylvania.
