Bible Records and Transcriptions at the DAR

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, widely known as the DAR, has added an index of the digitized family Bible records in its collection. Every day they are digitizing more and adding them to the index. Since the DAR has been collecting such records since its formation, it has one of the world's largest collections of them. The press release it issued announcing this new resource says more than 40,000 Bible records were indexed.

DAR Bible Records and Transcriptions

Today (8 June 2015) I did severe searches and listed the names that came up. The results look like this:

Bible Description: Jacob BONNELL (1812-1890) and wife, Sarah Wolf (1818-1891)

Book Title: Pennsylvania DAR GRC report ; s1 v335 : Lycoming Co. ... and miscellaneous bible records [bk. 4] / Lycoming Chapter

We can't ignore this reminder that appears at the bottom of every search result: "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, published or posted in any form whatsoever." 

That probably rules out posting an image on your Ancestry tree, but not citing the record as a source.

This link takes you to the page that explains how you can request copies of the search result record.
