Our Patriot Ancestors

Rev War
Did you know that your ancestor -- male or female -- did not have to serve in the military to be a patriot? There are many other acceptable service qualifications, such as civil service (serving as a town, county or state official), patriotic service (taking an oath of allegiance or providing material aid, such as supplies, to the troops).

Did you know?  The DAR has a searchable database containing information on proven patriots and descendants of past and present DAR members.  You can browse the collection here.
