The Major William Chronicle Chapter, NSDAR, welcomes potential new members.

Chapter meetings are held five times a year. Each luncheon meeting features a speaker on topics of historic preservation, education, patriotism, or support of veterans. For more information, please see visit our Calendar page.

By attending a meeting, you will meet members who have the experience to assist you in obtaining your goal of membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Please contact us for an invitation to visit one of our chapter meetings.

How to join

Any woman, age eighteen and over, who can prove she is a direct descendant of a patriot of the American Revolution can join. Our members can help you locate the necessary proof if you think you are eligible but don’t yet have the documentation.

For additional information, please visit the National Society DAR membership webpage.

Who is a patriot?

A patriot is anyone who supported the cause for American independence. This might be a citizen who served in a government position, such as a juror, someone who served in the military, or someone who gave material aid to troops or the government. Many patriots are already documented, but some are not.
