Do you have a Revolutionary patriot in your family tree?
Membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) honors and preserves the legacy of your patriot ancestor. Proving your lineage can be fun and you will learn a great deal about your family and of our nation’s history. Any woman is eligible for membership who is no less than eighteen years of age and can prove lineal, blood line descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence.
Membership requirements are the same for all chapters. No chapter discriminates against applicants on the basis of race or religion. Women interested in becoming members of DAR are encouraged to attend a chapter meeting. As part of our Membership program, both chapter officers and our members are available to offer suggestions and provide assistance to women who wish to join DAR. Our meetings provide an excellent opportunity to become acquainted with chapter members.
For chapters located in other parts of Florida, please visit the Florida State Society Website. For other locations in the United States and throughout the world, please visit our National Society Website.
You do not need to complete an application worksheet before attending a chapter meeting. You do not even need to have identified your patriot ancestor. By attending a local chapter meeting, you will meet DAR members who have the experience to assist you in obtaining your goal of DAR membership. We would love to have you attend one of our meetings, and meet new friends, hear outstanding speakers, and join us in contributing to our community and nation.
