Genealogy

Genealogy

DAR members are women who come from diverse backgrounds and have a variety of interests. Their common bond is their lineal descent from patriots of the American Revolution – any woman, regardless of race, religion or ethnic background, who can prove this lineage is eligible to join. Your genealogy is the story of you. Are you interested in discovering your family story, or becoming a member of DAR?
