Last week we asked about your ancestors’ involvement in the Revolutionary War. 87% of respondents had an ancestor who served as a solider for the American side. 2% of respondents are direct descendants of a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Complete results are:

  • 87%, I had an ancestor who served as a soldier for the American side.
  • 39%, I had an ancestor who supported the American side through patriotic activity (providing aid, serving as a government officer, etc.)
  • 25%, I have joined a lineage society based on my ancestor's involvement in the Revolutionary War (on either side).
  • 21%, I have joined a lineage society based on my ancestor's involvement in the Revolutionary War (on either side).
  • 13%, I have ancestors involved on both sides of the conflict.
  • 9%, I had an ancestor who served as a soldier for the British side (including mercenary soldiers serving for the Brits).
  • 8%, I don't have any known ancestry involved in the Revolutionary War.
  • 4%, I have French, French-Canadian, or ancestors of another nationality who supported the American side.
  • 2%, I am a direct descendant of a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
