Because you visited our website, you probably are interested in genealogy and perhaps you've discovered a Revolutionary patriot in your family tree. Membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) honors your patriot ancestor and preserves your patriot's legacy. As a member of DAR and through your participation in the Society's programs and activities, you, too can continue the legacy of those who dreamed of the country we all celebrate today.
Our goal is to preserve the memory of those men and women who fought or gave service in the cause of freedom and independence during the American Revolutionary War.
Any woman is eligible for membership after her eighteenth birthday, if she can prove her lineage to an ancestor who aided in American independence, and is able to provide appropriate documentation for each generation to her patriot ancestor.
The National Society reserves the right to determine the acceptability of all service and proof thereof. The National Society accepts service, with some exceptions, for the period between April 19, 1775, the Battle of Lexington, and November 26, 1783, the withdrawal of British Troops from New York.
