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 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. We are women who care about fostering good citizenship, honoring our ancestors, educating our youth, and preserving our past for future generations.
