    I have long wanted to join SAR but lost some family history paperwork in a move and cannot connect a couple generations. My Rev ancestor, supposedly, was fellow named Benjamin Miller who was a cousin to George Washington (who wasn't) and was his personal messenger. As I understand it, requirements for SAR are much less stringent than for DAR. I'm a Master Mason but never heard of the Sojourners until reading this thread.

    I don't think The SAR is any less diligent in vetting it's members than The DAR, but I could be wrong. Either one you must have the hard documents for proof. My sister is a DAR regent. We applied at the same time. Her application was approved long before mine. About 6 months before. However some of that has to do with how many applications they are working with so it is kind of an Apples to Oranges thing.

    Rifleman1776, I am the registrar for the Black Warrior River Chapter, Alabama Society, SAR. It is my job to assist potential members is assembling the necessary documentation needed to apply for membership in the SAR. I would be happy to assist you to the extent I am able, in proving your ascendancy from a Revolutionary War ancestor. You may e-mail me if you wish at jkbarksdale@hotmail.com.

    I am in the process of joining DAR. My Rev Soldier's brother had been vetted but not my direct ancestor. It has been a very long process and am finally signing final application to turn in. Myself, a sister, daughter and niece are all joining in my Mother's memory. Time did not wait and she was unable to join.
    Good luck on your process.

    Thank you. If I ever discover that documentation (hopefully just misplaced) I'll contact you.

    Does it count if you're descended from a Hessian... ;-p

    Can’t hurt, my ancestors were both, German, and Patriots.

    I don't know if might help anyone but Ancestry has a new DNA/family tree composite that is in the beta stage. I spent a couple of hours on it last night and ended up with 4 very probable revolutionary war veteran fourth and fifth great grand fathers. In the documentation they usually SAR and DAR listed with the (at the time) immediate family members.
