Welcome to the Omaha Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution website! For over 125 years, the Omaha Chapter, NSDAR has been committed to the threefold purpose of Patriotism, Historical Preservation, and Education. When you join the DAR, you become a part of a network of more than 190,000 women who form lifelong bonds, honor their revolutionary ancestors, and serve in their communities.
Nearly 250 years ago, American Patriots, pledged “their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor” to fight for the freedoms we enjoy today. If you have a Revolutionary Patriot in your family tree, becoming a member of the DAR honors and preserves the legacy of your ancestor.
Any woman 18 years or older-regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background-who can prove lineal descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American Independence is eligible to join the DAR. If you believe you are eligible for membership, please complete the contact form on this website. You are welcome to attend a meeting and we would be happy to help with your application.
