Question: Does NEHGS have copies of the applications for all of the Sons of the American Revolution chapters across the United States? Is it possible to order a copy if the member is deceased? My great-uncle was a member in the 1930's.
Answer: NEHGS does not own a physical copy of all the applications for S.A.R. Chapters located at the headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky. However if you visit NEHGS you can access these applications from 1889 to 1970 from our library subscription to Ancestry.com If you can not visit NEHGS, or do not have access to Ancestry.com you can order a copy from the S.A.R. To request a living member's application for the benefit of your own membership, or obtain a copy of a deceased members application for $10.
