The National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in Washington, D.C., on October 11, 1890. Today the non-profit, non-political society has over 185,000 members and 3,000 chapters in all 50 states and around the world. We support veterans, the National Society’s schools, scholarships and other programs through annual donations and fundraising activities.
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. She will be asked to provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage and death, as well as provide some information about her patriot ancestor.
We would love to have you join us! We stand by ready to help you on your journey to proving your descent from a man or woman who served the cause during the American Revolution. Please visit out contact page to let us know your interest in becoming a member.
