Genealogies and Family Histories

Most archives, historical societies, and genealogical societies have special collections and indexes of genealogical value. These must usually be searched in person.

A notable manuscript collection of compiled genealogies is the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Collection. This collection consists of transcripts of Bible records, cemetery records, church records, marriages, deaths, obituaries, and wills. It was microfilmed in 1970 and 1971 at the DAR Library, Washington, D.C., and is available on 20 reels at the Family History Library. It is listed in the FHLC under ARKANSAS - COLLECTED WORKS.

A compilation of the genealogies of some of the early pioneer families is Mrs. Larry P. Clark, Arkansas Pioneers and Allied Families (Little Rock, Ark.: Mrs. L.P. Clark, 1976; FHL book 976.7 D3c; film 1,036,635, item 4; fiche 6051363).
