Joining the DAR?

Since recovering from ankle and knee injuries, I've been thinking about ways to get involved in the community. One of my favorite hobbies is genealogy, so I decided to look into joining the Daughters of the American Revolution, also known as the DAR. No one else in my immediate family is a member, and I'm not aware of any more distant relatives who are members either. So, it's going to be a bit of a stretch to prove my lineage, but I think it'll be worth it! I also think it'll be a nice way to meet more people in the area.

I'm not sure which of my possible Revolutionary War ancestors I should use for my membership lineage. Someone from the local chapter will help me decide. It's pretty exciting to think about!
