The DAR’s Genealogical Records Committee Reports began in 1913 and continue to arrive every year. The information in these 20,000 typescript volumes is predominately Bible record and cemetery record transcriptions along with many other types of transcribed or abstracted genealogical sources. The Genealogical Records Committee has sponsored a project since the late 1990s to index all names in every one of the GRC Reports in the DAR Library.

    wow. this is a great resource. Thank you for sharing. I remember the DAR from high school. When I moved to CA I never heard of them again. I thought it was a New England organization.

    i’m so glad I found you from the A to Z blog.
