Duay has a PhD in Adult Education and currently serves as the Lineage Research Chairman for the Florida State Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

With so many resources available today, it is often easy to find and document the Revolutionary War Patriot.” Duay’s husband is the State Genealogist for the Florida Sons of the American Revolution.
Sponsored by the Cora Stickney Harper Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, any member of the public who is interested in genealogy will find this two hour workshop helpful.
