Membership Resources

Joining the National Society United States Daughters of 1812 is a great way to honor your ancestor’s heroic deeds of the civil, military, and naval life of those who molded this Government between the close of the American Revolution and the close of the War of 1812 with the signing of The Treaty of Ghent in 1815. Members participate in historical preservation, patriotism, and fellowship.

Admission is by invitation after an affirmative vote by the chapter or state society. Applicants shall have the endorsement of two members in good standing to whom the applicant is personally known.

Membership is available to women age eighteen and over who can offer satisfactory proof that they are lineal descendants of an ancestor who, during the period of 1784-1815 inclusive, rendered civil, military, or naval service to our country, rendered material aid to the U.S. Army or Navy, or participants in the many expeditions during the era like The Lewis and Clark Expedition.

Membership is through a local chapter or as a Member-At-Large.
