GREAT!! I am in that BOMC process right now.Ed's paperwork is all complete and we now await the invitation. Once that is complete, he will be 'in the process' through their genealogists.
You will need an invitation from a member in good standing to get the preliminary application to the BOMC; so if by the time you get your documentation completed, if Ed's app has been approved, he will be happy to be your sponsor if you do not know of anyone else. (after all, we have known of one another now for many years.In fact, if you have not followed Ryderus's line recently, with some of your work and the VERY scant info I have proving Sarah Clark to Ryderus, I was able to have his lineage and Rev. War history finally preserved in the DAR archives..He won't get 'lost' again! Thank you for your work on the Clark line).
I have just now this morning tentatively found Ed's line through the Kings of France: William I, Richard I, Richard II, Robert I who was the father of William I, the Conqueror. I have not yet found how William the Conqueror is descended from Charlemagne, but I do know that you and my husband descend from him through your lineage that is proven back through Gilbert de Clare and Joan Plantagenet, daughter of King Edward I Longshanks of England.
