NSDAR - Resources for Your Revolutionary War Ancestors WEBINAR


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.

  1. Pat, Be sure to tell your audience about the GRC section of the DAR web site. This is where the DAR has attempted to create an index that covers all of the names of the individuals included in the 17,000 GRC books that have been prepared by the various DAR Chapters. So far the database has over 44 million names. It is a genealogy gold mine that includes many individuals who have no connection with the American Revolution. It is best to search for all states as records seem to travel places that the individual may have never visited. If there are too many matches, then start cutting back to individual states. You make a determination as to whether or not the individual found is your ancestor by looking at the other names on the page. If you are at the NSDAR building you can view the entire book on their computers.
