DAR

Spent last night on the DAR website, tracking Revolutionary ancestors. Their online database provides information not only on the Revolutionary soldier, but on civil servants and those who swore an oath of allegiance to the Americans.

Also, you can search descendants of the soldiers, which is helpful - though no one in my direct line has applied for DAR membership, descendants of other lines have. So I can follow collateral lines back to a common ancestor!

  1. Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
