Those eligible for active membership are women no less than sixteen years of age who are blood descendants, lineal (in a direct line of ancestry) or collateral (descended from the same ancestors but not in the same line) of men and women who served honorably in the Army, Navy or Civil Service of the Confederate States of America, or gave Material Aid to the Cause. Women who are adopted are eligible only through the bloodline of a biological parent (Article IV Section 3b).
No Confederate ancestor who took the Oath of Allegiance before April 9, 1865 shall be eligible to be used for application for membership. If proof of further Confederate service is available, thereby nullifying the Oath of Allegiance, the ancestor shall be considered for approval (Article IV Section 3b)
