NSDAR Motto:

"God, Home, and Country"

Welcome to Rhode Island, the state that has the distinction of being the smallest state in the Union with the longest name (Rhode Island and Providence Plantations).  We may be small but we are dynamic with eight chapters and over 400 members who locally support our National Society’s mission of promoting patriotism, education, and historic preservation, since our State Society was established in 1891.

We are thrilled you found us and are interested in knowing more about the DAR and how to become a member.   To become a member you must be 18 years of age or older and have a patriot (man or woman) who either fought or supported the Revolutionary War effort.  Researching your ancestors back to the Revolutionary War is like a spider web unraveling itself, revealing the many mysteries it holds within its folds.  In your research you will learn of the sacrifices of these men and women so future generations may have the freedom we so cherish today.  Come learn more about your ancestors and enjoy the adventure of finding your roots, the DAR, and Celebrating America.  Please feel free to contact any chapter or the State Society to find out more about our activities, the DAR, and membership.

                                                  Thank you for visiting our website.                       BPS Offical Photo.jpg
