Each member of Ponte Vedra Chapter, NSDAR is proud of the direct lineage connecting her to a patriot who aided the cause of the American Revolutionary War through military, civil, or patriotic service. Our patriot ancestors sacrificed their lives and fortunes to fight for the freedoms that we enjoy today. We honor their legacy through our membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution.

If you think you have a patriot ancestor, you can search the DAR Ancestor Database to see if he or she has already been acknowledged as a DAR patriot ancestor. The database includes information taken from verified DAR membership applications and is not a comprehensive list of all who served in the Revolutionary War. New patriots are added as they are proven through DAR membership applications. If you would like us to help you prove your connection, please feel free to contact our chapter registrar.
