A great way to pursue your Revolutionary War ancestors can be via seeing what lineage applications have been filed by others!
To help you with that, Ancestry.com has FREE access to Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) database until July 7th! You can browse this collection now!
See who a lineage application has been filed for. See what source information was used in support of the application.
Editor’s Note: Do recognize that many lineage societies, including the SAR and DAR have stricter requirements on documentation and proof than is often found in older applications. Do check the current “proof” requirements for any lineage society you seek to join. If nothing else, older applications can provide great clues to the records you will need in support of your own application!
