There is no better way to honor your lineage and heritage as a descendant of a Patriot of the American Revolutionary War than to become a member of the DAR.
Membership in the DAR is dependent on the ability of each person to provide documentation of birth, marriage, and the death of your Patriot and their descendants. A Patriot is anyone who supported the cause for American independence through military, civil, or patriotic service, which must have occurred during the period between April 19, 1775, and November 26, 1783. For a list of acceptable services see the Accepted Revolutionary War Service webpage for more information.
Members of DAR are a vibrant and active group of women who are passionate about performing service to their community, preserving history, and educating children. In addition, the DAR woman honors and supports those who serve our nation. You are welcome to contact one of our New Jersey DAR chapters; it is the best place to start. Our chapters can answer your questions about membership, projects, or activities, and will be happy to assist with the membership process. Look on our New Jersey DAR chapters webpage for a location close to you. You can visit the NSDAR membership webpage for more information. Learn about DAR and how to easily begin the membership process.
We Love Our Junior Members
A Junior member is a DAR member aged 18 through 35 years. Our Juniors are college students, career women, and stay-at-home moms. Juniors join DAR for a variety of reasons and have diverse interests. Working together for a common goal forges many friendships and offers endless opportunities for personal and professional growth. DAR supports Junior Membership by encouraging active participation within all levels of the organization. Juniors are the future of DAR. The New Jersey State Society DAR prides itself on its many active Junior Members at all levels of the society.
