The Independence Hall Chapter of the DAR is committed to community service and honoring those that gave their all for our country. We are the only DAR Chapter still meeting in Center City Philadelphia. We meet on the 3rd Saturday of the month September through June. We welcome speakers to our meetings & take historic tours nearby. Additional social events and volunteer opportunities happen often and throughout the year.
Membership in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is a unique opportunity to establish one’s lineage and heritage as a descendant of a patriot of the American Revolution. Our members are vibrant women who balance their daily responsibilities while serving our community in the areas of historic preservation, education, and patriotism. We welcome new, active members to join us in fulfilling the objectives of our chapter, state, and national organizations.
Finding Your Lineage
Gaining membership in the NSDAR is a unique opportunity to establish one's lineage and heritage as a descendent of a patriot of the American Revolution. Applicants must prove their lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American Independence. Documentation required for each generation includes proofs of birth, marriage, and death. Documentation is required to link the generations to one another. The first link is the applicant’s birth certificate naming her parents.
