Contact our membership chairman at [email protected]
We are thrilled that you might be interested in pursuing membership in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution and are here to help answer any questions you may have. First, please contact us so that we may provide details to you of our next chapter meeting or event. Our membership chairman, Melissa Mansour, may be reached at [email protected] and our chapter regent, Allie Golon is available at [email protected] or by using our “Contact Us” page.
Next, begin to gather your family information. You can begin by gathering the vital records—birth, marriage, and death certificates—of your first three generations: you, your parents, and your grandparents from whom you descend from the Revolutionary War patriot.
You might next start to identify an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence between April 19, 1775 (the Battle of Lexington), and November 26, 1783 (the withdrawal of British Troops from New York), by exploring the DAR database at www.dar.org and by reviewing “How To Join” provided by the National DAR. If you are comfortable, feel free to continue on to the “Genealogy” page and work on the provided Pedigree Chart (PDF). But, if you don’t know where to start or haven’t researched much of your own genealogy, don’t worry! We are delighted to help you! Our chapter has an active membership team, including many women who are happy to help you with research and documentation, the application paperwork, and to introduce you to our chapter members, activities, and meetings.
