GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH
Help with research, and the application process, is available at the DAR Elias Van Bunschooten Museum library. Please use the Chinkchewunska Chapter contact information (below) for inquiries about the library.

If you want to know if a known ancestor is recognized by the DAR as a Revolutionary War Patriot, please check the Genealogical Research System on the NSDAR website. The GRS is a combination of several extensive genealogical databases and contains names of Revolutionary patriots, both men and women, whose service (between 1775 and 1783) has been established by the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution. Additional information available may include: dates and places of birth and death, name(s) of wife (wives) or husband(s) and children, rank, type of service and the state where the patriot lived or served.

Please remember that not every Revolutionary patriot is included in this list, but only those who are ancestors of NSDAR members. A recent addition to the GRS is the ability to order and download copies online of any application(s) that you believe will help in your own research and application.

Application papers of active, deceased, resigned, or dropped DAR members may be requested from the Office of Registrar General, Record Copy.

The NSDAR web site provides information on how to begin, or continue, your genealogical research.
