DAR Genealogical Research System

The Daughters of the the American Revolution has a very useful resource, although its primary purpose is to help in the process of applying for membership in the organization.  Here you can check to see if your ancestor's Revolutionary War service was used to support a membership application to the DAR.  There is an option to purchase documents for $10, but the site is free to use and can help in finding Revolutionary War service and help focus your lineage search.  As in all genealogical research, each tiny bit of information can be an important piece of that big family puzzle.

Very obtuse search interfaces, even when you have the name of a DAR member (obviously a woman), results are based on a man's name, even if her husband is not related to the revolutionary ancestor.
