Membership

The Society welcomes any woman who is eighteen years of age or older who can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence during the period between 19 April 1775 and 26 November 1783. She must provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage, and death. Members between the ages of 18 and 35 are Junior Members. One very important function of a Junior Member is to serve as a Page at the various state meetings and the state convention. It is also possible for a Junior Member to serve as a Page at the Continental Congress which convenes in Washington, D. C.
