The Daughters of the American Revolution Library is rich in publications relating to American genealogy and history. The Library is open to DAR members free of charge and to non-members for a fee of $5.00. The DAR Patriot Index (Washington, The Society, 1990) lists thousands of names with origins in the American Revolutionary period, including many naval officers and men.

The NSDAR Americana Collection of early American manuscripts and imprints in the Office of the Historian General contains slightly more than 4,000 accessions, primarily single items, dating from colonial times to the present. Included are documents relating to Captain Elisha Hinman of the Continental Navy; Joshua Barney; John Barry; the Marine Committee of the Continental Congress; the Continental Navy Frigates Deane and Alliance; the Virginia Navy Brig Liberty; and assorted other materials tangentially related to naval affairs, especially during the period of the American Revolution.
