Goals of NSDAR

    "To preserve Constitutional government of the people, by the people, for the people; and to instill in the hearts of all Americans a sense of Patriotic pride in our forefathers who -- at so great a cost -- left us a heritage of freedom."

 

 

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution supports several schools and offers scholarships.

NSDAR has an American Decorative Arts Museum. There are 33 period rooms in the museum which is located in Washington, DC. Many programs are available for schools, children and families throughout the year.

The DAR's library catalog is available for online searching. Also, the DAR Manual for Citizenship is available for use online.

Have you ever wondered if your ancestor contributed to the American Revolution? You can request a look-up from the Patriot Index. This is not a list of everyone who contributed in some way to the American Revolution, but a list of all those whose service has been documented by a DAR member. New Patriots are added regularly.

Please visit the Michigan Society's homepage.
