Linares Chapter, NSDAR, Invites You to Be a San Diego Daughter!

You are patriotic. You honor your family's revolutionary heritage and want to preserve it for future generations. You believe in educating youth about our country's history. You enjoy contributing to your community through causes such as conservation, women's issues, and veterans. Sound familiar? Then the DAR might be for you!

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR), founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women's service organization. Our members are all direct descendants of Patriots of the American Revolutionary War and are a group of women of all ages with varied backgrounds, talents, and professional experiences in many fields, each of whom is respected and valued as a member.

The DAR is a vibrant and growing volunteer organization that is dedicated to promoting: Veteran Memorial
  • Patriotism

  • Historic Preservation

  • Education

The Linares Chapter, NSDAR, is very active in the San Diego area. We have a monthly luncheon meeting, held January through June and October through December, with a program that supports our National Society's mission, and our chapter's emphasis is on service to our community.  As a chapter, our most distinguishing characteristic is the wonderful sense of comradery and respect we feel for one another.  We actively promote the National Society's objectives, and we always have fun doing it!  

We sponsor and participate in several patriotic events throughout the county, and we are dedicated to supporting our veterans and active-duty military alike.  If you are looking for a sense of community and service, you are in the right place! If you are not sure if you descend from a Patriot, contact us and we can help you with free look-ups in our Genealogical Research System (GRS).

Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background who can prove direct lineal descent from a Patriot of the American Revolutionary War, is eligible for membership. On October 11, 1890, eighteen women met to officially organize the NSDAR for historic, educational, and patriotic purposes. Since that day, over one million members have been admitted into membership.
