Genealogy Today reports the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution are publishing a book of bible and family records collected over the past several years.
In addition to Bible records, we have added several pages of family records, plus a complete roster of all chapter members since it was organized in 1896. This listing is in chronological order, and, besides listing the names of all members, we have included the Revolutionary War ancestor of each member, with his or her state of residence, spouse, and child through whom the member descended. Also included is a listing of the members of the now-inactive Lucy Audubon Chapter National Society Children of the American Revolution. This listing contains the same type of information as that included with the DAR chapter roster.
You can contact the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR).
I recently found out that I qualify as a member of the DAR on several family fronts, but I’ve not yet joined. Still, this book should provide interesting information and may be coming to a DAR house or chapter, library, or family history center near you. Or consider giving it as a late holiday gift to a DAR loved one.
