The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 and incorporated by an Act of Congress in 1896. The Society reports annually to the U.S. Congress through the Smithsonian Institution. There are more than 165,000 members in 3,000 chapters located in the 50 states and around the world. Our objectives are historical, educational, and patriotic. The DAR Patriot Index contains vital data on approximately 115,000 Patriot ancestors of DAR members.
The Daniel H. Brush Chapter was founded in 1963 and is named for a founding father of Carbondale. Our chapter is comprised of enthusiastic ladies of all ages, backgrounds, and talents.
We'd love to have you join us. As a group we are committed to
Membership in the Society is very rewarding. To become a member, a woman must be at least 18 years old and be able to prove blood descent from a person who rendered patriotic service during the American Revolution. Many think this must be someone who fought, but there are many other ways a man or woman would qualify as a patriot. You can read more about membership requirements and download a worksheet here.
If you think you are eligible, come to one of our meetings or contact one of our officers. Many of our members are willing to help you find ways to document your lineage.
