Daughters of the American Revolution

The DAR, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children.

Encompassing an entire downtown city block, DAR National Headquarters houses one of the nation's premier genealogical libraries, one of the foremost collections of pre-industrial American decorative arts, Washington's largest concert hall, and an extensive collection of early American manuscripts and imprints.

To visit the DAR's genealogical library online: Click Here.

The United Daughters of the Confederacy also has significant genealogical resources.

I wanted to give equal time to the Daughters of Union Veterans but it appears to have no online information as to its genealogical resources. Its web site does, however, give contact information.

Also of interest is the National Archives' Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System, previously featured here.
