Want to Join the SAR?
The SAR has many members around the world.
Some are U.S. citizens living outside the United States due
to business or government assignments.
Some are citizens of nations other than the United States,
whose ancestors aided the cause of U.S. independence.
You may be eligible to join the SAR if you have an ancestor who helped
the cause of U.S. independence -- whether that person was a U.S. resident
or participated as an ally in the war against Great Britain during 1776-1783.

A donation to the Center for Advancing America's Heritage will help provide
a new building to house our library, free up space in the main building to display
our collection of Revolutionary War materials and provide better tour experience
for regional schools, and convert more of genealogical and historical research material
for public use on our new Revolutionary War history site, www.rsar.org.
We are well along our goal of 6,000,000 $US for this center.
The lot across the street from headquarters has been purchased,
the houses there have been cleared, and the site is ready for construction.
