|DAR Patriot Index - Free Lookup Service|
Do you think you have a U.S. Revolutionary War Patriot (male or female) in your family tree? The DAR will search their database of proven Revolutionary patriots for you free of charge. The DAR Patriot Index contains the names of male and female patriots whose Revolutionary service (1774-1783) and lineage have been established by the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution. Please keep in mind that not everyone who served in the Revolution will be listed in this index. Only Revolutionary patriots whose service has been proven by members applying to DAR are included.
Additional information available for those listed in the DAR Patriot Index may include: dates and places of birth and death, name(s) of wife (wives) or husband(s), rank, type of service, the colony where the patriot lived or served and pension papers (if known to exist). You can request this free DAR Patriot Index Lookup Service by completing a simple online form. If your ancestor is found in the index, you can request a copy of the DAR application form which includes the information on your ancestor for a $5 fee. The Web site even allows you to check on the status of previous lookup requests!
The National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution is one of the oldest organizations in the United States dedicated to the preservation of American Revolutionary War genealogies.
