Is there a way to access the patriot ancestors data on DAR?

+4 votes
The DAR has changed their website.  For a while, I could still find their ancestor search, but not today.  Looks like they have made further changes.  Either they have removed the search, or hidden it pretty well.  Anyone know where to find it now?  (as of today)

Anyone know any news on the whole question of using their information in WikiTree profiles?  I know we changed the template.  What about service info, "ancestor numbers," and documentation references to DAR?

I believe they pretty much closed everything down to wikitree. One of the leaders was looking into verification , but has yet to hear back. it seems.


As for the search I would not find it hard to believe they hid it completely

Thank you both for answering.  I followed your link, M. and it led me to this link

Yeah!  we found it  cool



Here's what DAR's GRS web page says about using their databases:

"The databases contain DAR proprietary information which should under no circumstances be redistributed to others; assembled or collected for purposes other than DAR membership or for citation in genealogical scholarship; or reproduced or published in any form whatsoever."

From previous communications we've had with DAR, they apparently don't include citations on wikitree profiles as "citation in genealogical scholarship" since they do not want us linking to specific entries in their databases or including the DAR # anywhere on a wikitree profile. Even in a citation. 

I guess that settles that, then. Jillaine.  Thanks for setting us straight.  M.
That may not be the most recent information, but that's the last information *I* had about the situation.
