DAR Chapter Membership

The Denver DAR is a women's patriotic organization always accepting new members.  With growing interest in genealogy, especially among young people, Denver Chapter DAR looks forward to a second century of continued growth in this community.  Any woman who can trace her lineage to a Revolutionary patriot is invited to join.  The ancestor need not be an actual soldier but may be any man or woman who contributed to the war effort in any capacity.  Some women furnished 'food and fodder' to the soldiers.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Must be 18 years of age
  • Prove her linage and blood decent from an ancestor who fought or participated in the Revolution
  • Must submit documentation of all events such as marriage, birth, death, and a copy of the applicant's birth certificate is required.

When you join the Daughters of the American Revolution, you are preserving your ancestor's memory and service forever.  Once you have done this, families later on can use your application as a starting point, saving possibly years of research.  DAR's library in Washington, D.C., has a huge inventory of genealogy records - books - family trees - and so much more.  If you are interested in our organization, please contact Gayla Scheid our Registrar for lineage help on the adjacent form.
