Abstract: Active studies of selected double-lined spectroscopic and eclipsing binary star systems in open clusters have been carried out at the RAO of the University of Calgary in order to improve knowledge of the absolute parameters of individual stars at discernible stages of stellar evolution and of the Galactic clusters of which these systems are members. Here, the basic theoretical approaches used in this study are summarized, and the criteria for selecting cluster candidate binaries are reviewed. Active target systems, their clusters, magnitudes, and other information are given.
