Membership Information

Do you have a Revolutionary Patriot in your Family Tree?

Membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) honors and preserves the legacy of your Patriot ancestor. Over two hundred years ago, American patriots fought and sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today.

As a member of DAR, through participation in the Society’s various programs and activities, you can continue this legacy by actively supporting historic preservation, promotion of education, and patriotic endeavors.

Any woman is eligible for membership who is at least eighteen years of age and can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence.

Acceptable Service:
The National Society reserves the right to determine the acceptability of all service and proof thereof. The National Society accepts service, with some exceptions, for the period between April 19, 1775 (Battle of Lexington) and November 26, 1783 (withdrawal of British Troops from New York).

To learn more about how to join DAR, visit the “Become a Member” page on the NSDAR Website.
