Welcome to Thankful Hubbard Chapter
Thank you for visiting our website. We want to
help you if you are interested in joining the Thankful Hubbard Chapter of DAR!
Any woman, 18 years of age or older, who can prove her lineage to an American
Revolution patriot, is eligible. Your patriot may have provided military,
patriotic, or civil service. We may be able to match your online family tree to
an existing proven lineage in DAR, or help you to find a new patriot who has
not yet been recognized.
We are blessed with talented, enthusiastic members of all ages who are proud to serve the Austin area. Thankful Hubbard Chapter awards scholarships, honors veterans and active duty military, helps to preserve historic sites, celebrates our American heritage, and preserves genealogical records. It is our hope that you will join us and we look forward to hearing from you! Admission to membership in the NSDAR is either by invitation through a Chapter in your State Society (or Unit Overseas) or as a Member-At-Large. If you are interested in joining the Thankful Hubbard Chapter, please email the chapter.
Our chapter meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month, September through May, at a charming, historic 1870's era Victorian mansion, just west of downtown Austin. We are the 2nd largest chapter in the State of Texas and the United States and we continue to grow! We are proud to have won the DAR National Award for the most new members in the U.S. for the last 3 years. We are proud to have the 2nd largest count of Junior Members (under age 35) in the State.
