Just thought I'd pass this on.
In case you haven't dug in the Daughters of the American Revolution online library lately, genealogy buffs really should. Now you can search for Patriots (while keeping in mind this is not an all inclusive list) and for descendants who have joined under the known patriots.
New patriots are always being added to the DAR files as new members prove patriotic service of a beloved ancestor.

And, yeppers, my fingers have logged in many an hour working as a volunteer on parts of this project!
