NOTE: Unless this is a very common name do NOT fill in any other information.
NOTE: Twenty-five results appear at one time.
NOTE: If red lettering appears stating "Future Applicants Must Prove Correct Service," this means that the DAR no longer accepts the service for the ancestor that was submitted with all previous DAR applications. New service must be found before submitting an application for this ancestor.
NOTE: If red lettering appears stating "Problems Have Been Discovered With At Least One Previously Verified Paper - See Ancestor's Full Record," this "red flag" may or may not apply to your lineage. Contact your local DAR Chapter to determine whether this problem pertains to your lineage.
NOTE: If an "S" appears before the name of the patriot's child, that means the application was a "Short Form." Short Forms have very limited information, and they cannot be used to prove the lineage to the patriot ancestor.
NOTE: In general, the more generations that you share in common with a recent DAR application, the less documentation you will need to submit with your application.
