Genealogical Records Committee Reports with 65 Million Names

For over one hundred years, the Daughters of the American Revolution, in an attempt to preserve unpublished information has compiled Genealogical Records Committee Reports. These reports contain information collected and compiled by members from tombstones, bible records, and other similar material. These reports were compiled and bound--with one copy of the report staying at DAR headquarters in Washington, DC, and the second being sent back to the state society. Some of these volumes have been microfilmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah.

In an attempt to make this information more accessible, an index was created. That index is posted on the DAR website here.   Users unfamiliar with the Genealogical Records Committee Report should read that information before searching.

Names in this index are not just to Revolutionary War patriots or their descendants and does not just cover the Revolutionary War time period.
