Welcome to the online home of the Abraham Lincoln Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR). We are so glad you found us and hope that you enjoy your visit.

Chances are you arrived here because you are interested in joining the Daughters of the American Revolution. We are currently the only chapter in Logan County, Illinois.  Chapter members live in many surrounding communities and our meetings are held at various locations. Membership in the DAR is very rewarding as we foster the ideals of our National Society of patriotism, historic preservation, and education. We participate in many worthwhile activities and for more than 110 years have kept the spirit of our American Revolutionary War ancestors alive.

Your male or female ancestor did not have to serve as a soldier during that time, but may have supported the cause in other ways, such as contributing food or ammunition, signing a petition, or serving as a community leader. Contact us to attend a chapter meeting.  You can learn more about becoming a member here.

DAR offers many opportunities for service, such as working with youth, encouraging members to get involved in their communities, to assist with historic preservation and patriotic events, and promoting the preservation of our family and local histories. It is a way to work with others to make America a better place to live.  Please take a look around our website and if you think you are eligible, are interested in joining, or wish to visit our chapter, please contact us

Here is a listing of our Patriot ancestors.


Membership in the DAR is very rewarding. To become a member, a woman must be at least 18 years old and be able to prove lineal, bloodline descent from a man or woman who helped in the cause of American independence between 1775 and 1783. 

When you join DAR, you become part of a network of more than 190,000 women who form lifelong bonds of friendship, honor the memory of their American Revolutionary War ancestors, and promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism in their communities. Learn more here or contact us.
