DAR Genealogical Research System (GRS)
The DAR Genealogical Research System (GRS) is a combination of several databases created in recent years to organize the large quantity of information that the DAR has collected since its inception in 1890. The DAR’s Genealogical Records Committee Reports began in 1913 and continue to arrive every year. The information in these 20,000 typescript volumes is predominately Bible record and cemetery record transcriptions along with many other types of transcribed or abstracted genealogical sources. The Genealogical Records Committee has sponsored a project since the late 1990s to index all names in every one of the GRC Reports in the DAR Library.
