Sons of the American Revolution

Huron Valley Chapter


National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (NSSAR) is a lineage society. This means that each member has documented his family tree back to an ancestor who supported the cause of American independence during the years 1774-1783. Men and women who supported the American cause, in any way, are called patriots.

You have identified/documented a patriot ancestor. If you already know that you have a patriot ancestor, contact the Michigan Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (MISSAR) chapter nearest to your home for assistance with the membership application. Or if you have a DAR member in your family that you are related to they are an excellent source for family information, if you have the same lineal descent.

You need to document a potential patriot ancestor.  If you aren’t sure whether any of your identified ancestors qualify as an American Revolutionary War patriot, don’t lose heart. MISSAR chapter members and genealogists are prepared to assist you with information and provide research advice to you. Contact the chapter nearest to your home for information and assistance. See the Chapters page for chapter locations and contacts. Also, see for a wide range of information and assistance.

For membership application assistance, contact the Huron Valley Chapter Registrar (see Officers tab) to assist you in completing the NSSAR application for membership and assembling the lineage documentation. Upon approval of your application you will enjoy membership at chapter, MISSAR and NSSAR levels.
