Do you have a Revolutionary War patriot in your family tree?

Over two hundred years ago, American patriots fought and sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today.


Membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) honors and preserves the legacy of your patriot ancestor. 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. More information on eligibility and membership requirements is available at the NSDAR website.
