Lineage Societies and Military Historical Organizations

The information available through lineage societies and military historical organizations can help you "flesh out" your ancestor's military experience and life. For instance, you may find unit histories or journals from soldiers who served with your relative, allowing you to retrace your ancestor's service battle by battle. These sites will help you in your search for such supplemental information:

  • Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR):
    www.dar.org
  • Genealogy.com's Offerings at the DAR and SAR Libraries:
    www.genealogy.com/24_dar.html
  • Cyndi's List of lineage societies and groups with a military focus:
    www.CyndisList.com/military.htm#Societies
  • The National Archive's official publications can point you in the right direction:
