Would you like to know more about the Colonel Thomas Reynolds Chapter?
If you have a patriot of the American Revolution in your ancestry, we would love to have you visit and to join us. If you believe you are descended from a Revolutionary patriot but are not sure, please know that visitors are always welcome, and we will help you trace your ancestor. It is important to note that the term "patriot" includes not only those who served in the army, navy, or a militia but also those men and women who provided funds, food, livestock, shelter, medical attention, or in any way furthered the cause of American independence.
Our chapter will be happy to provide assistance to you in proving your descent from a patriot of the American Revolution, and in establishing your eligibility for DAR membership. We can also provide you with genealogical advice if you are just beginning your family search. For assistance please contact our registrar, Karen Hardy.
