Genealogical Records

The Genealogical Research Committee was established in 1913, to collect and index unpublished records of a genealogical nature, bind them, and place them in the DAR Library. Wide varieties of genealogical records have been published by the Committee, which makes available many privately held manuscript collections of libraries, historical societies, state archives, and individuals.

The committee's publications also include transcribed public records such as: county and town deeds; marriages; probate proceedings; court orders and minute books; town council minutes; parish registers of marriages, births and deaths; vestry minutes or session books; Bible records; church records; funeral home records; school censuses; vital records found in newspaper accounts; tombstone inscriptions and cemetery records; and documented family histories, diaries, papers, and letters.
