As another poster stated, Google Dividend Achievers and Dividend Champions. That will get you started.

And don't get taken with high dividend yield. TMF has actually had a couple of good articles recently on why high yield isn't the only thing to look at.

But for some ideas, you can get a couple energy/utility companies with 5-6% yield as a base (SO and KMP for example). And then throw in MCD, JNJ, KO, and the like which might have 2-3% for know but have a long history of growing dividends. In 5-10 years that 2-3% could be 7-10% in yield on initial cost.
