Any woman at least eighteen years of age, who can prove lineal, blood line descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence, is eligible for membership. Documentation is required, and must be verified, but you don't have to "go it alone." Our Blue Spruce genealogy specialists are here to help you with your search and paperwork.
Welcome to the web site of the Blue Spruce Chapter, National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR). Our chapter is one of 44 chapters statewide, and part of the more than 3,000 proud DAR members throughout Colorado. Most of our members reside in the Lakewood area, although we draw members from the Golden, Arvada, Morrison, Wheat Ridge and Littleton communities. We also have a number of out-of-state and associate members, and are home to approximately 90 members.
We are extremely proud to have served our community since 1952, through the DAR objectives of historic preservation, promotion of education, and encouragement of patriot endeavors. If you're interested in the kinds of projects our chapter has been involved with in the past few years, please visit the Committees page of this website.

About the NSDAR: The NSDAR, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children. DAR members volunteer more than 250,000 hours annually to veteran patients, award thousands of dollars in scholarships and financial aid each year to students, and support schools for underserved children with annual donations exceeding one million dollars. As one of the most inclusive genealogical societies in the country, DAR boasts 170,000 members in more than 3,000 chapters across the United States and internationally.
With membership requirements linked to a direct descendant of a Revolutionary War patriot, our history is deeply rooted in the past. But today's DAR is a vibrant organization of women of all ages, looking forward to the challenges of not only preserving the past, but enriching the future.
