Documenting the Lineage for Eligibility in DAR or SAR The collection includes hundreds of free databases for the United States containing vital records, census records, probate records, military records, and court records.

Google Power Search: How to Search by a Date Range and Why You Might Want To | Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter There’s a lot more you can do with Google than just searching the entire Internet.
