Find Your Patriot Ancestors!
This CD contains over 610,000 family history records of Patriots and their descendants - over 140,000 more than were contained on the 1998 Edition of the Patriot Index. (The first edition of the CD was published in 1998, and contained only 470,000 records.) Records are presented in standard genealogical format, (i.e., as a lineage-linked database), so that descendants, where applicable, can easily be traced back to Patriot Ancestors.
Using Progeny Family Explorer included with the Index, it is easy to search and navigate through records in the database, as well as print family reports and charts for various people on the CD.
An ongoing project of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR), data for the Patriot Index is compiled from ancestral cards on file at SAR National Headquarters, primary and supplemental applications from State Archives, and approved membership applications submitted to the SAR between 1880 and 1998.
An extensive online section of the CD also provides information on the SAR and how to become a member.
