     DAR Membership Interest Form

If you're serious about joining the DAR, start with this Pedigree Chart 

IMPORTANT! - YOU must provide documentation (i.e. birth certificates, marriage certificates etc.) for the FIRST THREE generations of your line (you, your parents, your grandparents). We cannot do this for you. You will need to contact your birth state or territory’s vital records office.  The initial page says "where to write," but if you keep clicking the state's info, you'll find how to do it online in many cases, too.
