The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR):

~ The largest women's patriotic organization in the world ~
~ Over 175,000 members, with 3,000 chapters in all 50 states and 12 countries ~

We welcome women who want to participate in
the historical, educational, and patriotic activities of the DAR.

Membership in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is
a unique opportunity to establish lineage and heritage as a descendent of a Patriot
of the Revolutionary War. Volunteering through the DAR is an effective way to
honor our Patriot ancestors, recognize their roles in establishing the
United States of America, and carry forth their purpose of American freedom.

We are delighted to answer questions about the DAR or Patriot lineage.

Prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American Independence;
Document each statement of birth, marriage, and death in the lineal line;
Document the ancestor's patriotic service in the Revolutionary War; and
Be a minimum of 18 years of age.
