Do you have a Revolutionary War patriot in your family tree? Membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution honors and preserves the legacy of your patriot ancestor.
Any woman is eligible for membership who is no less than eighteen years of age and can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence.
You do not need to complete an application worksheet before attending a chapter meeting. You do not even need to have identified your patriot ancestor. By attending a local chapter meeting, you will meet DAR members who have the experience to assist you in obtaining your goal of DAR membership.
The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women's service organization with a focus on preserving American history, promoting patriotism and better education for children. In addition to monthly programs, The Signal Hill Chapter, NSDAR offers genealogy workshops twice a year, open to anyone interested in tracing their roots and applying for DAR membership.
