- Nov 9 3:43 PMHi Martin, welcome,
DAR is the Daughter's of the American Revolution. They have the same, for men...SAR, I believe it is. If you can trace your line back to someone that was in the war, you can get an application online and send it in. Membership gives you access to military records, and I'm not sure what else.
Several of the previous posts will give you information on where to start researching, and free sites for information. Any easy way to get "hints" on information is to go to Rootsweb, type in your family members name, and see if anyone has a family tree data base already set up. Don't rely on other people's research, unless there are documents to support it.
Such as the census, or death records, etc.

I have just started, 15 seconds ago, ;) to start my families
background. I am already lost in what to do. I have some rumors about
my family that was told to me on idle chatting with my family. I was
told my great aunt was a member of the DAR and was told that the DAR
should have some information on that part of my family. But don't know
where to start or what to do. . .
