DAR Records Online

The Daughters of the American Revolution Genealogical Research System is a combination of several databases created in recent years to organize the large quantity of information that the DAR has collected since its inception in 1890. Much of the work to create these research tools is the direct result of funding provided by the President General’s Project of the administrations of Linda Tinker Watkins (2001-2004) and Presley Merritt Wagoner (2004-2007). This system of databases will continue to expand as new information is added.

Access to the various databases is through the “tabs” along the top of the search screen. The following descriptions provide basic information about each database.

It is worth noting that the DAR which in 1939 famously refused to allow the singer Marian Anderson to perform in Constitution Hall because she was black this year joined in the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the concert she subsequently gave at the Lincoln Memorial instead.
