So, to be clear, you know that the ex-dividend date is the first day after the record date. Ex-dividend means that is the first day a purchaser of the stock would not be eligible for the dividend payment. The record date meaning all shareholders of record, this date, will receive the announced dividend.
With my dividend stocks, all with set up DRIP through my broker, I check randomly through yahoo or google finance, and sometimes Morningstar. I realize that with 70 that could become cumbersome. I do not know of one specific site that would allow this type of search specifically...sorry.
