Becoming a DAR Member

DAR is more than just a lineage society. It is a service organization with a long history and a focus on education, historic preservation and patriotism in their communities.

Any woman 18 years or older 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.

You can learn more about the steps to membership on the National Society website.
