Welcome Daughters and future Daughters!

On behalf of the South Dakota Society Daughters of the American Revolution, it is a genuine pleasure to welcome you to our state website.

The Daughters of our ten vibrant and friendly chapters are always ready to add new members. It is an honor to invite you to visit our chapter websites and explore the many activities and events that are part of being a member in each of our chapters.

Visiting our website can be your first step in joining us in membership to a National Society that is based on service to our communities through historic preservation, education, and patriotism. If you are a woman eighteen years or older, regardless of your race, religion or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot who provided aid to the American Revolution, you are eligible for membership. You will receive the necessary assistance from a trained staff of volunteer genealogists who are dedicated to helping prospective members find their patriot ancestors.

Once you have visited and chosen one of our chapters as your home in the Daughters of the American Revolution, you will be a valued member of an organization that began October 11, 1890, and is now an important part of the lives of over 180,000 women. These women are serving their communities in all fifty states, Washington, D.C., and internationally in 14 countries.

Please visit one of our chapters, where you will be warmly welcomed by the members who are your family, your friends, and your neighbors.

DAR ... where every member is valued!
