Mrs. Richard C. L. Moncure, II, National President 1986 - 1989, searched nationwide for an appropriate depository for our lineage records as well as the official records of the National Society. She and our National Society were pleased to find that the Virginia Historical Society was interested.
Our lineage records are archived and available in Digital and Hard Copy for researchers at the Virginia Historical Society. Copies of all our Lineage Books are in the research library. Original lineage papers and official records are stored in the climate-controlled archives.
Researchers may, also, request information by mail. A DCW National Number is necessary to gain access to documentary information concerning the ancestor with service.
