Preserving North Carolina History: Daughters of the American Revolution
The genealogical National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, founded 1890, is headquartered in Washington D.C.’s Constitution Hall. NSDAR is a non-profit, non-political volunteer service organization dedicated to preserving American history, furthering education, and promoting patriotism. Any woman 18 years or older with lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible for membership.
With no government funding, DAR members across the globe volunteer millions of service hours annually in their local communities, supporting active duty and veteran military, student scholarships and financial aid, schools for under-served children, naturalization ceremonies for new citizens, and patriotic holidays.
