The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) was founded on October 11, 1890, with the purposes of historic preservation, promotion of education, and patriotic endeavors.  Any woman 18 years of age or older who can prove lineal, blood line descent from a Patriot of the American Revolution is eligible for membership. DAR recognizes Patriots not only as soldiers, but as anyone who contributed to the cause of American freedom. Documentation of said lineage must be provided according to NSDAR guidelines on the official membership application and with acceptable supporting materials.
