Over two hundred years ago, American Patriots fought and sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today.
Membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) honors and preserves the legacy of our patriot ancestors.
As a member of DAR, you can continue this legacy by actively supporting historic preservation, promotion of education, and patriotic endeavor.
Our chapter members warmly welcome guests and prospective
members to our meetings. If you believe you have a patriot in your family tree, or have located an ancestor who
was a Revolutionary patriot, we can help you complete your research and
your membership application.
Who is eligible:
Any woman is eligible for DAR
membership who is eighteen years of age or older and can prove lineal descent
from a Revolutionary Patriot.
Your Patriot Ancestor:
Your ancestor is considered
to be a Patriot if it can be demonstrated that he or she showed unfailing
loyalty to the cause of American Independence, served as a sailor, soldier,
or civil officer in one of the Colonies or States, as a Recognized Patriot,
or rendered material aid. If you are not sure your ancestor's
service qualifies you for membership, you may search the
DAR Patriot Index at the DAR
Genealogical Research System. The GRS is a combination of several extensive
genealogical databases and contains names of Revolutionary patriots, both
men and women, whose service (between 1775 and 1783) has been established
by the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution.
Admission to membership in the NSDAR is by invitation through a Chapter in your area. No Chapter may discriminate against an applicant on the basis of race or creed.
A membership interest form is available on the NSDAR website
