How do I become a member of DAR?
Become a Member
There is no better way to honor your lineage and heritage as a descendant of a Patriot of the American Revolutionary War than to become a member of the DAR.Membership in the DAR is dependent on the ability of each person to provide documentation of birth, marriage, and the death of your Patriot and their descendants. A Patriot is anyone who supported the cause for American independence through military, civil, or patriotic service, which must have occurred during the period between April 19, 1775, and November 26, 1783. For a list of acceptable services see the Accepted Revolutionary War Service webpage for more information. Members of DAR are a vibrant and active group of women who are passionate about performing service to their community, preserving history, and educating children. In addition, the DAR woman honors and supports those who serve our nation. You are welcome to contact our chapter; it is the best place to start. You can join us at one of our chapter meetings to learn more about DAR and our chapter. We can also answer your questions about membership, projects, or activities, and will be happy to assist you with the membership process.
