PA Real Daughters :

Welcome to PSSDAR

What is a Real Daughter?

A DAR Real Daughter is a woman who joined the DAR whose father was a Revolutionary Patriot. There has been some confusion about what is a Real Daughter. In the early years the Real Daughter Committee was marking the graves of any daughter of a Revolutionary Soldier. The NSDAR now recognizes the name Real Daughter only for those daughters of Revolutionary Soldiers that joined the DAR.

Are there PA Real Daughters?

In Pennsylvania, we have thirty-eight Real Daughters that were members of PA chapters or were PA Members at Large and ten members of chapters outside of Pennsylvania who are buried here. Most of them had Pennsylvania roots.
