Patriot Ancestors

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 can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible to join.

You can use the table below to see a list of the patriot ancestors of our current members. It’s possible to have multiple patriot ancestors in your family tree.

You can also use DAR’s online genealogical portal, the Genealogical Research System (GRS), for free.
