SAR Patriot Records Search
The SAR Patriot Record Index is a database combination of the previous SAR Revolutionary War Graves Registry, information from the SAR Patriot Index CD (2002), additional information and updates from various state grave registry databases and patriot biographical sketches submitted to tell the story of our patriot ancestors. Visitors will be directed to an external database site in order to access the SAR Patriot Record Index.
This database will continue to expand as new patriots and graves are found and biographical sketches are submitted as well as when new members are approved for SAR membership. This database is available for the purpose of general research and possibly assisting with the SAR membership process. The sources contained within this database, including patriot biographical sketches, are not acceptable as proof of service for an SAR application. Applicants and researchers must still find the original reference to the service when submitting an SAR application. Please be aware that the Patriot & Grave Registry is not a comprehensive list of all the individuals who served in the American Revolutionary War.
This database is a work in progress. SAR volunteers are attempting to eliminate duplicates, make additions to records when new data becomes available, and add new records and or biographical sketches for patriots as these ancestors are vetted. Please consult the Patriot & Grave Index tutorial or the Patriot Biographies tutorial for further details when navigating the resource. Visitors and researchers may submit comments, corrections, and new information to the Patriot Index Committee by email at email@example.com. When submitting a change or correction, please include the patriot’s reference number, citations, and references to support the requested change, along with any relevant follow up contact information. Patriot biographical sketches are requested to be submitted on the NSSAR Patriot Grave Biography Report. Please include the name of the submitter, his SAR Member National Number, and the chapter and state-level society. Non-members are also encouraged to submit a biographical sketch. Keep biographies to between 200 and 500 words in length. Completed forms related to only a biographical submission should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
