All DAR members who have successfully competed the Genealogical Education Programs GEP I and GEP II are ready to shine as Volunteer Field Genealogists.
Graduates of these courses may then share this information by either leading ten workshops at the local level each with a minimum of five attendees or serving as an assigned Volunteer Genealogist to a designated chapter in order to assist in completion of ten applications and the training of chapter members in the proper completion of applications. Providing this service establishes eligibility for this Volunteer Field Genealogists pin. Approval is required to purchase this pin.
This pin may only be worn by DAR members on the official Insignia ribbon according to the most current "Placement of DAR Insignia and Pins on Official Ribbon" document found on the Insignia Committee webpage.
This gold-filled pin measures 1 1/8" x 1".
