Discover Your Patriot Ancestor

Genealogy is by far one of the most popular hobbies in the United States. Expertise and skill levels vary considerably from novice to professional genealogy gurus. Joining the DAR does not require an interest in genealogy, but it helps to have some knowledge of one's ancestry. At the very least, you will need to gather documents for yourself, your parents, grandparents and possibly great-grandparents.

NSDAR MIK Christmas, Welcoming New Members Caroline Frymire, Chiquita Costen

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. You must provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage, and death, as well as of the Revolutionary War service of your Patriot ancestor.

Junior members are fully recognized members of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution between the ages of 18 and 35. They are students, professionals, moms, and homemakers all sharing a common belief in the perpetuation of the NSDAR motto, God, Home, and Country. They serve as pages to the state and National Society, raise funds for the DAR approved schools and other community projects and actively participate as members, committee chairmen, and officers. They are making a difference every day!
