Steps to membership in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution and the Mount Lookout Chapter:
- Contact Chapter Regent Allison Basile or Membership Chair Sue King by email or use our “Contact Us” page to attend a chapter meeting or event to meet our Daughters and explore what we do.
- Gather your family history information to identify an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence between April 19, 1775 (Battle of Lexington) and November 26, 1783 (withdrawal of British Troops from New York).
- Work with our chapter membership team to complete and submit your application.
To prepare for work on the application or before visiting with our membership team, please review this “How To Join” page provided by the National DAR. If you are comfortable, feel free to continue on to the “Genealogy” page and work on the provided Pedigree Chart (PDF). But, if you don’t know where to start or haven’t researched much of your own genealogy, don’t worry! We are delighted to help you! Our chapter has an active membership team, including many women who are happy to help YOU with research and documentation, the application paperwork, and to introduce you to our chapter members, activities, and meetings.
Our “Lineage Research” page also provides especially helpful information and links.
