The Sons of the America Revolution is a lineage society. As such, genealogy is of fundamental importance to the society and its members. Most members have spent significant time researching and proving their lineage back to at least one, and in some cases, multiple patriots.
Below is a list of local and online resources that may be helpful for conducting genealogical research.
DCSSAR can also provide a New Member Helper to assist with genealogy questions and your Sons of the American Revolution application. If you are looking for help with your genealogy, or if you are a member who wants to join our genealogy working group, please contact Doug Brooks (Genealogy Working Group Chair) at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
