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 must provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage, and death, as well as of the Revolutionary War service of her patriot ancestor.
STEPS TO MEMBERSHIP
To assist in your research, the DAR Ancestor Search database lists ancestors on whom members of the National Society have joined. This listing is continually updated as new membership applications and supplemental applications are approved.
If you are comfortable, feel free to continue to the Genealogy page and work on the provided Pedigree Chart. But, if you do not know where to start or have not researched much of your own genealogy, don’t worry! We are delighted to help you! Our chapter has an active membership team, including many women who are happy to help YOU with research and documentation, the application paperwork, and to introduce you to our chapter members, activities, and meetings. We look forward to hearing from you!
