Would you like to be a member of a women’s service organization whose patriot ancestors made possible our American independence? Add to that a heritage of service in historical preservation, promotion of education, and encouragement of patriotism, and you have Today's DAR. Women of diverse backgrounds, aged eighteen and older, who want to play an active role in their communities while making new friends, are today's Daughters. As one member states, "To learn I could become a part of the DAR changed my life. I've made friendships for a lifetime."

Join us! Worldwide, the National Society has 3,000 chapters, and over 170,000 members. The California DAR has 114 chapters statewide. You are eligible for membership if you can prove lineal descent from a Revolutionary War patriot who aided in achieving American independence. Help is available to document your lineage and to fill out the membership application.

Membership in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) is an excellent way to honor and preserve the legacy of your patriot ancestor. When you become a member, you have the opportunity to contribute to your community through service projects in the areas of historic preservation, education, and patriotism while making lifelong friends.
