Info about the GRC Index:
GRC Database Overview
The GRC Database is an every name index of the GRC Books housed in the
DAR Library. Currently, volunteers to the Genealogical Research Committee
have indexed 20% of the books and have entered more than 20 million names.
These typescripts contain a tremendous amount of unique genealogical
material, much of it gleaned from gravestones, family Bibles, and
personal collections. DAR members gather together information
accessible to them where they live, through family connections, or in
their own genealogical papers. In the course of a year, approximately
300 new reports arrive at the GRC office of the DAR Library for
addition to the collection.
Each entry in the database is linked to the library catalog. Click on
the link and users can find more information about the book in which
the name was found.
