On behalf of the more than 11,000 members of the Florida State Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR), I welcome you to our State Society website. The DAR is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer woman’s service organization that was founded in 1890. The eligibility for joining is proof of direct lineage to a man or woman who served in the American War for independence – The Revolutionary War. These patriots may have fought or rendered aid or supplies for the cause.
The DAR boasts more than 185,000 members nationwide. These Daughters work to promote three objectives of NSDAR: historic preservation, education, and patriotism. DAR members volunteer more than four million hours annually. Volunteer areas are as varied as our membership with assistance to veterans, schools, literacy, scholarships, preservation, libraries, conservation, American history, and many other avenues of service. Our members are diverse in age, race, religion and ethnicity; but, our commitment to service and our country is a common denominator.
With 108 chapters in Florida, from the Panhandle to the Keys, we invite you to inquire about DAR membership. Please contact a chapter in your area for more information.

What Our Members Say
Members come from all walks of life. There are many opportunities to grow within the society. Genealogy, historic places, cemetery preservation, education, and volunteer services, just to name a few.
“It has been a pleasure being a member of Caravel Chapter, NSDAR. I have gained long lasting friendships with ladies that share the same passion for family history. Researching your family line is truly the best treasure hunt ever!”
“Being a member of the Orlando Chapter, NSDAR, for nearly 15 years has been filled with adventures, friendships, and opportunities. The DAR ideals of Patriotism, Historic Preservation, and Education are embodied through the various committees in which I joyfully volunteer.”
“As we uncover our family stories, we proudly acknowledge the patriotic service of our Ancestors who gave aid to the American colonists. We strive to remember, cherish, maintain, and extend the institutions of American freedom for which our Patriots fought and died.”
