Join DAR

Any woman is eligible for membership who is no less than eighteen years of age and can prove lineal, blood line descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence. She must provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage, and death.

While this may sound like a daunting task, our Registrar Virginia Rood and her assistants will be happy to help you get your documentation in order. If you think you have a qualifying ancestor and would like to hear more about DAR, please fill out the form under "Contact Us" or send an e-mail to and we will be happy to help!

Junior Membership

Any DAR member aged 18 through 35 years (until her 36th birthday) is a Junior Member. She holds full DAR membership and may serve as an officer or chairman at the national, state, and chapter levels. The California State Society prides itself on its many active Junior Members at all levels of the Society. The goals of the National Junior Membership Committee are:

·To gain new Junior Members;
·To build a well-informed Junior membership;
·To encourage active participation in all phases of DAR service; and
·To support the National Junior Membership Committee’s official fundraising project – the Helen Pouch Memorial Fund – that provides medical aid, general financial assistance, and scholarships to our DAR schools.

Admission to membership in the NSDAR is by application and is effective once you are notified your application has been proven and your NSDAR number has been assigned. You are encouraged but not required to attend chapter meetings prior to your application being accepted by NSDAR.  Our chapter whole heartedly endorses the National policy which states that no chapter may discriminate against an applicant on the basis of race or creed.
