The SAR is a historical, educational, and patriotic non-profit, United States 501(c)3, corporation that seeks to maintain and extend:

  • the institutions of American freedom

  • an appreciation for true patriotism

  • a respect for our national symbols

  • the value of American citizenship

  • the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people.

We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.

Who Can Join

The SAR is a "lineage" society. This means that each member has traced their family tree back to a point of having an ancestor who supported the cause of American Independence during the years 1774-1783. Support can include military service, government service, providing supplies to the military, taking an oath of allegiance to the cause, and many other possibilities. Basically anything that helped further the cause of freedom from the Crown. If you have relatives that have been in the DAR or SAR, then you are probably eligible to join. If you think you have a patriot ancestor or if you are not sure, you are more than welcome to visit. We can help you with your research.

Download a blank application by clicking HERE. Provide as much information on your lineage going back to your patriot as possible. It's not a big deal if you don't know all of the dates and places. Assemble all of your documentation. You will need copies of birth, death, and marriage records for the first couple of generations. Bring what you have to one of our meetings, and the chapter genealogist will look it over and help you complete the application. Once the application is complete, it will be submitted for approval. Final approval can take anywhere from 2-6 months. If you have any questions, contact the chapter genealogist via e-mail. 

Our chapter genealogist has prepared a guide highlighting some genealogy resources that you may not have known about.
