Your Lineage

The key to joining the DAR is tracing your ancestry back to a patriot of the American Revolution. There are many resources to help you trace your lineage. The coming video for this topic will provide more information about discovering and documenting your family history so you can join the DAR.

Your Patriot Ancestor

The DAR may already have a record proving your ancestor was a patriot of the American Revolutionary War. If not, you will need to document your ancestor's patriotic service, to be able to join the DAR. The coming video for this topic will provide more information.

Your Application

Your local DAR chapter can help you prepare your application to join the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution. There is an official application form and specific requirements for the submission of your lineage and source documentation. The coming video for this topic will provide more information.
