Historic Preservation

Preserving Family Records

National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) Daughters volunteer millions of hours each year. Many of those hours are spent collecting, digitizing, and indexing historical records. These records include family Bibles, obituaries, wills, probate records, marriage records, cemetery records, and more. The DAR Library in Washington, D.C., houses one of the largest known collections of digitized family Bible records in existence. As of December 2020, the collection includes over 84,000 family Bible records, with more being added every year.

Agnes Hill Chapter, NSDAR, Daughters are actively searching for family records to photograph and record for inclusion in the DAR archives. If you have or know of the location of a family Bible, marriage records, cemetery records, or any other genealogical record not available online or in print, please contact us. We would be honored to help preserve your family history for future generations.

In December 2020, Agnes Hill Chapter, NSDAR, Daughters had the pleasure of photographing the Rose Anna Hamilton Family Bible, published in 1867.
