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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
