Genealogy is by far one of the most popular hobbies in the United States. Expertise and skill levels vary considerably from novice to professional genealogists. Joining the DAR does not require an interest in genealogy, but it helps to have some knowledge of your ancestry. At the very least, you will need to gather documents for yourself, your parents, grandparents, and your great-grandparents. With 86 chapters in the State of Indiana, and 3,000 chapters nationally and internationally, DAR has numerous volunteers who can assist you with research.
The links below will help guide you through the beginning stages of your research. In addition to getting you started in gathering your documents and your initial research, these pages will provide an overview of our online genealogical resources.
