Daughters of the American Revolution Presentation
Who are DAR members?
They are women a lot like you, who come from diverse backgrounds and have a variety of interests. Their common bond is their lineal descent from patriots of the American Revolution – any woman, regardless of race, religion or ethnic background, who can prove this lineage is eligible to join.
The organization was founded in 1890 with the simple mission of promoting historic preservation, education and patriotism. These timeless, overarching principles keep the DAR strong and vitally relevant in this ever-changing world.
This nonprofit, nonpolitical volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history and securing America's future through better education consists of over 185,000 members in 3,000 chapters across the world.
Kathy has been in the DAR for 31 years, she was one of the original members that founded Grand River Trail Chapter in Milford. She is the Registrar for the chapter that helps the women gather their information to join the DAR. She will also have the help of the State Volunteer Genealogist, Karen Eckhardt.
