 Preserve American History

Why Should You Join Us?

The SAR is the largest male lineage organization in the United States and is made up of numerous state societies and more than 500 chapters. Members of the SAR can trace their lineage back to a patriot who served in or supported the cause of the American Revolution. With more than 34,000 members around the world, SAR is also much more than just a lineage society.

We are a living, breathing, and ever-evolving organization that invites Americans to connect to their personal past and civic history. We are called to make our mark on society and ensure that the stories of our nation’s struggles and our ancestors’ triumphs are remembered and shared with current and future generations.

Being a SAR member involves you in your local and national community with telling the story of the Founding Fathers and the creation of the United States of America.  It connects you to the history of the American Revolution by a direct means in tracing your lineage.  It allows you to connect with others that also share that same type of connection.
