Do you believe the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) are those ladies who managed the Alamo? No! Not to be confused with the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, who are descendants of the founders of this great state, the DAR are descendants of founders of our great nation. Daughters of the American Revolution ancestors are patriots from the American Revolutionary War and the group was established to not only honor our ancestors, but to also serve in the areas of historic preservation, education, honoring today’s heroes, and furthering American patriotism.

Perhaps you’ve never given it much thought, but you are a very important person -- a link in a living chain that joins the past to the future. If you do a little digging, your ancestors stop being just names and dates, but instead become genuine people, who married, had children, worked hard, and went through the same trials and tribulations of life just as you. No doubt, you are descended from a long line of people who may have been clergymen, farmers, public servants, hardy pioneers, or men of law who helped to build this country. As you begin, and then continue your search of those who came before you, you realize that you are not here by accident, but rather you are the means to continuing a living history. Discovering who you are is not only a grounding experience, but also a richly rewarding connection of the past to the present, and as your children grow, to the future.

If you suspect your lineage can be traced to the early years of America’s founding, the Daughters of the American Revolution would like to help you in your search. If you are over age 18 and believe you may be a direct descendant of this country’s founding families, the Susanna Dickinson Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, encourage you to join us. We have genealogy specialists who can help you put the pieces of your past together.
