Thought about joining Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR)?

Any woman 18 years or older who can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence is eligible to join the DAR. She must provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage and death, as well as of the Revolutionary War service of her Patriot ancestor.

DAR volunteers in chapters throughout the country can provide guidance and assistance with the application process. Admission to membership in the National Society is through a chapter or as a Member-At-Large.

When you have discovered your own genealogical background, check to see if someone has already joined DAR using your ancestor.  You might have a portion of a lineage in common.  To find out check the Descendants and Ancestor links in the GRS.

If you discover a common lineage in the GRS, you may want to see the complete DAR application detailing this lineage, called a Record Copy. Electronic Record Copies may be purchased directly from the GRS.

By completing the application process you will discover how your ancestor helped to achieve American Independence.
