Membership in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is open to any woman who is at least 18 years of age. She must be able to establish her blood lineage to a man or woman who provided support for the cause of American Independence during the American Revolutionary War. She should be willing to explore her love of "God, Home and Country" through activities and programs with the chapter, the Virginia DAR, and the National Society DAR.

We invite you to contact us to learn more about connecting to your Revolutionary patriot!

Should you wish to contact a chapter in another area, use this link to submit contact info to our national website. A chapter representative in that area will contact you as soon as possible. 


Thanks for contacting us, someone will be in touch shortly.

Helpful Research Links

DAR members come from a variety of backgrounds and interests, but all share a common bond of having an ancestor who helped contribute to securing the independence of the United States of America. Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion or ethnic background, who proves lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible to join.

To begin your patriot ancestor search we recommend visiting the NSDAR Genealogical Research System. This is a free resource that holds the names of proven ancestors and provides links to other useful research tools.
