Lineage Society Applications

Honor Your Ancestors And Connect With Others

I would like to thank you and your staff for all the help you gave me in putting together my DAR application. The application was submitted to National in November and was approved in December and I am now a member. I was told that it was the 'best application they had received.' Please thank all the staff that worked on it for me. Y'all do an outstanding job up in Boston.

Do you have an ancestor who came over on the Mayflower or who fought in the American Revolutionary War? Lineage society memberships with groups like The Mayflower Society, the Sons of the American Revolution, and the Daughters of the American Revolution are a great way to honor that heritage.

Membership in these societies requires documented proof of your ancestry – called qualifying outlines. We can set up the qualifying outlines between you and your ancestor. For every generation, we list each person's name, birth date, death date, marriage date, and all respective locations. Attached to each page are the proofs required by the lineage society. We can also fill out the application with appropriate citations for you.

Among the different societies that you can join are The Colonial Dames of America, Winthrop Society, Jamestowne Society, General Society of Colonial Wars, The Order of Founders and Patriots of America, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, and Sons of Confederate Veterans.
