Record Copies and Research Services Available from NSSAR



The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution currently offers several services for researching your ancestors.


Record Copy

A Record Copy is a verified official copy of an approved NSSAR membership application or supplemental application. To recognize a Record Copy look for the signature of the Registrar General on the application, the registered date of membership or the “Record Copy” stamp found
on the copy.
Fee: $10.00 (non-refundable) for an electronic copy -- $15.00 (non-refundable) for mail or Fax copy
The Ancestor Search is simply a search through the membership records for a particular Patriot Ancestor. This search is only on those verified Patriots available through our membership records and does not include a lineage search. Please note with this request you will receive the latest application filed on that particular Patriot Ancestor. If you request an application through a specific child of a Patriot ancestor, we will send the latest application through that child if there is one available.
Fee: $10.00 (non-refundable) for an electronic copy -- $15.00 (non-refundable) for mail or Fax copy

The request for documentation includes the first 10 pages of the paperwork, with each additional page is billed at $0.50 per page. For a total count of pages available in a particular record email: RecordCopyatsar [dot] org
