Beginning Your Research

Where should you begin? Start with what you know about your immediate ancestors. Interview relatives who might have information about family history. Begin by recording information with the memories shared from your parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles. The DAR Genealogical Research System (GRS) on the DAR website is a new and outstanding resource available for free to anyone who is interested in researching a patriot. 

Armed with this information, begin to explore your family tree online. There are many free resources that offer a wealth of information, such as Family Search and local libraries. 

If you get discouraged, contact our chapter Regent who can guide you in researching a patriot ancestor.

If you have questions about the DAR in general, many answers can be found in Today's DAR and You!
