This collection includes records from The Daughters of the Republic of Texas,a lineage based organization and as such, its members must prove their descent from a man or women who rendered loyal service for Texas (prior to the Annexation Agreement with the United States on February 19, 1846) to be eligible for membership. The collection consists of images of approximately 1,525 booklets of applications and their attendant documentation for the years 1892 to 2010. Lineage books and pedigree files usually accompany the application and may include copies of vital records submitted as documentation. The collection is located in the society's headquarters in Austin, Texas. The collection is organized by volume, application number, and years. Later volumes were not assigned volume numbers. If you have the application number, you should be able to find it in one of the ranges listed in the browse lists.
