“The Omaha Daughters are wonderfully supportive. I’ve made some very dear friends!”
When you become a member of NSDAR, you join a network of more than 175,000 women who form lifelong bonds, honor their revolutionary ancestors, and promote historic
preservation, education, and patriotism in their communities. Omaha Daughters range in age from 18-92 and include college students, young mothers, members of the military, members of the work force, active volunteers, and retirees. Each member has a unique gift to offer the chapter.
Who is eligible for membership in DAR?
Any woman is eligible for membership who is no less than eighteen years of age and can prove lineal blood line descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence.
What is considered acceptable Revolutionary War service?

- Signers of the Declaration of Independence

How do I begin the membership process?
Admission to membership in the NSDAR is either by invitation through a chapter or as a Member-At- Large. Applicants must provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage, and death. Since the application process may seem daunting for someone unfamiliar with genealogy research, the Omaha Chapter has established a volunteer Lineage Committee to meet with prospective members, provide research assistance, and guide them through the application process.
If you are interested in NSDAR membership, the Omaha Daughters would love to have you attend one of our monthly meetings. For more information, please contact our Chapter Registrar.
