Gila Butte DAR has announced a genealogy workshop scheduled for Sun Lakes in December. The workshop is entitled “How to Become a Member of DAR – The Genealogy and Application Process.” The workshop will be presented by trained DAR Genealogy Consultants.

Membership in DAR is a commitment to service. Eligible women with such a commitment may make a workshop reservation by calling Betty Wells at 602-430-6048. Attendees are asked to bring their research plus family documents and other lineage information.

Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) operate on a committee system and each service committee supports at least one of DAR’s three objectives: preservation of history and historic places; education which ensures our nation’s future; and patriotic endeavor. There are more than 40 service committees and each Daughter works on the committee(s) most in line with her interests and talents.

Gila Butte DAR meets in Sun Lakes. The chapter was founded in 2002 by 22 pioneering Daughters. Today, there are more than 100 Gila Butte Daughters around the Valley and the nation and all are dedicated to the Society’s motto, “God, Home and Country.” The chapter welcomes women over 18 who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution. Membership information is available by calling 602-430-6048 and on the chapter website gilabutte.arizonadar.org.
