About DAR

Many Americans have asked themselves, "I wonder if any of my ancestors were patriots in the American Revolution?"  Finding the answer has drawn nearly a million women to join the Daughters of the American Revolution since it was founded in 1890.  Women from all walks of life, religions and races have been members of DAR.  Finding our own family history reflected in our nation's history, learning how people lived and worked and seeing their patriotism and belief in freedom; encourages us to preserve our nation's heritage. Our chapter can assist you in identifying patriot ancestors, researching your family history and helping prepare your DAR application.

In addition to genealogy and historic preservation, DAR works to promote patriotism, education, service to veterans and to improve the communities in which we live. The Caloosahatchee Chapter enjoys programs on local history, conserving Florida's wildlife and our natural environment.  There are also programs from authors and presentations about education and women's health.  Our chapter has a variety of committees that promote DAR's goals and new members are encouraged to get involved.

The Caloosahatchee Chapter also brings together mothers and daughters, aunts, cousins and grandmothers, some of whom have joined together. Members often find life-long friends in DAR.

As members of DAR, the Caloosahatchee Chapter is extremely proud to support an organization dedicated to preserving our American heritage of freedom and patriotism.  Our task is to perpetuate the efforts of those who have gone before us, building on their accomplishments in ways that are positive and productive so that our American heritage endures for many generations to come.
