Do you have an American patriot in your family tree?
The DAR honors and preserves the legacy of your patriot ancestors. Over two hundred years ago, American patriots fought and sacrificed for the freedoms that we enjoy today. As a member of the DAR, you can continue this legacy by actively supporting historic preservation, promotion of education, and patriotic endeavors through participation in our chapter's various programs and activities (such as those listed on this and the home page), as well as those of the National Society!Today's DAR is comprised of amazing ladies, just like you! We come from diverse backgrounds, hold a variety of interests, and share a unique common bond in our lineal descent. To be eligible to join, you must be a woman aged 18 years or older and be a direct descendant of an ancestor who aided in the cause for American independence between the Battle of Lexington, April 19, 1775, and the withdrawal of British troops from New York on November 26, 1783. You may also have a family member who is or was a DAR member through whom you can apply.
