Men, don't let the term "daughters" throw you. Delving into NSDAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) application files can turn up documents provided as evidence of family relationships for each generation. Join this webinar Saturday to view a live demo of the DAR website and learn about the small but significant part that must be done in person or via remote research assistance.
Ol' Myrt here particularly recommends this newly revised website, as you can search for not only the patriotic ancestor, but for family members of the generations "in between." Once you find a lineage that is close to yours (perhaps "branching in" about 3-4 generations back) you can immediately download the application file with references to proof documents for a small fee.
Then its a matter of obtaining the source documents. There are a few tricks to this part, so be sure to tune in to the webinar for the latest info.
