How do I join the DAR?
Do you have a Revolutionary War patriot in your family tree? A patriot may have been in military service during the war for independence, but he or she may also have contributed to the cause by providing material aid such as supplies for the troops. The Major Winfield Scott Chapter welcomes potential new members. Please contact us for an invitation to visit one of our chapter meetings. By attending a meeting, you will meet members who have the experience to assist you in obtaining your goal of membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Who can join the DAR?
Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution, or ancestors who contributed to the independence cause via donations of goods or support, is eligible for membership. To become a member your first step will be to trace your lineage and identify your patriot ancestor. Then gather your proofs (birth certificates, marriage certificates, death certificates, bible records, church records) of lineage and complete your application papers.
The Major Winfield Scott Chapter looks forward to meeting you. Please contact us for further information.
