I understand what you are saying. Sometimes I use the word “ancestor” rather loosely to include relatives. I was wondering what your Q means. Does it matter to WHO? The genie societies— they arent my concern.He's related to me by blood not marriage. But he's not someone I can describe with the word father or mother in the title - not in the straight line up my tree. So - does that matter?
I did NOT know the SCV accepts members on collateral relative. When I joined, I was sure you had to have a direct ancestor.
In your first para, you stated: “ at least eleven more soldiers”.
you cant have 11 ancestors who served in the Civil War? Can you?
