Become a Member of DAR

Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, 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. 

To assist in your research, the NSDAR 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. Need help with your research? Use the contact form below to get in touch with a chapter representative who can help you get started.
