Many Americans have asked themselves, “I wonder if any of my ancestors were Patriots in the American Revolutionary War?” Finding the answer has drawn over a million women to join the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) since it was founded in 1890. Finding our family history reflected in our nation’s history, learning how people lived and worked, and seeing their patriotism and belief in freedom encourages us to preserve our nation’s heritage. Our chapter can assist you in identifying Patriot ancestors, researching your family history, and helping prepare your DAR membership application. In addition to genealogy and historic preservation, our chapter works to promote patriotism, education, service to veterans, and to improve the communities in which we live.
The Echebucsassa Chapter, NSDAR, was founded in 1929 in Plant City, Florida. Our chapter has grown since then and now also serves Dade City and Zephyrhills, Florida. The Echebucsassa Chapter, NSDAR, provides a diversity of programs and activities to enjoy. As members of DAR, the Echebucsassa Chapter, NSDAR, is extremely proud to support an organization dedicated to preserving our American heritage of freedom and patriotism. Our task is to perpetuate the efforts of those who have gone before us, building on their accomplishments in ways that are positive and productive, so that our American heritage endures for many generations to come. We invite you to contact us for more information and join us today!
