Class Limit: 15

Course Prerequisite: American Revolution ancestry


Do you have a patriot ancestor—a Virginian? Pennsylvanian? New Yorker? Someone from Massachusetts where the first battles were fought at Concord and Lexington? If so, are you interested in joining the Daughters of the American Revolution or the Sons of the American Revolution? If you have a direct line of ancestry to one who fought or gave aid during the American Revolution and can support that claim of ancestry by genealogical evidence, this class is for you. Participants will receive instruction in the process of gathering evidence needed in the application for membership.
