Patriot Ancestors

fireworks To the right on every page we have listed some of our patriot ancestors. You may wonder what these brave men and women did to allow us to join DAR by virtue of their service. While not all of our ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War, they all contributed to the cause of Independence.

Some ways your patriot ancestor contributed may have been through military, civil, or patriotic service. View details regarding service requirements on the National Society web site. There you will find information to guide you through the process from research to membership. The Genealogical Research Service (GRS) allows you to search a database of every ancestor used by a member to join DAR, and new ancestors are proven every day.

We are available to assist you with your research and offer suggestions to help you locate necessary information. We look forward to helping you find your patriot ancestor.
