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 Revolutionary War patriots and are a group of ladies 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 a very active chapter in the San Diego area.  We are a part of District XIV which encompasses eleven different chapters in San Diego and Imperial counties.  We have a monthly luncheon meeting with a program, October through June, 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 revolutionary patriot, contact us and we can help you with free look-ups in our Genealogical Research System.


Today's DAR: A Society Based on Service

DAR members volunteer millions of service hours annually in their local communities including supporting active duty military personnel and assisting veteran patients, awarding thousands of dollars in scholarships and financial aid each year to students, and supporting schools for under-served children with annual donations exceeding one million dollars.

As one of the most inclusive genealogical societies in the country, DAR boasts 185,000 members in 3,000 chapters across the United States and internationally. Any woman 18 years or older-regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background-who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution, 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 930,000 members have been admitted into membership.
