Becoming a Member


Membership in the Sons of the American Revolution is open to any male descendent of a person who served in the American revolution.  The steps to become a member are simple.  You will have to have documentation of your linage and proof of service.  The steps are as follows:


  1. Document your first three generations.  To do this, secure copies of  birth certificates, death certificates, and marriage licenses for yourself, your parents and grandparents.  Here is an application worksheet to help you get started.

  2. Select the Chapter in Arizona you would like to participate in and contact that Chapter's Genealogist.  The Genealogist will help you with the documentation and proof of service.

  3. If the prospective member is a referral from a DAR chapter you will need to provide this information on the DAR Finder Form.


Need some help finding your Revolutionary War ancestor(s) and/or the lineage back to your Revolutionary War ancestor(s)?  See AZ SAR Genealogist Ed Karr's Genealogy Gems which contain some very useful guidance. "Genealogy Gems" are updated throughout the year, so check back often.


For additional information, review the materials on the National Organization of the Sons of the American Revolution website and/or email State Membership Chairman Stephen J. Miller.
