Did you know that the DAR houses one of the premiere genealogy
collections in the country at its headquarters in Washington,
D.C. The DAR
Genealogical Research System lets anyone look for a
patriot ancestor or a descendant from the comfort of their home. There
are also links to search the DAR Library collection of Bible records,
books, and other types of records. Additionally, the Illinois State
Organization has an
extensive collection of genealogical research material in the Illinois
DAR Genealogical Library housed in the C.E. Brehm Library in Mt.
Vernon, Illinois. Within our chapter, they are ladies who can
help you in your goal to be a member of DAR. We would welcome you at
one of our meetings to get to know each other. Contact us for time
We honor our ancestor patriots as part of our commitment to historic
preservation and patriotism.
Our members are descendants of these patriots who sacrificed their lives and fortunes to establish this nation.
