HERITAGE CHAPTER

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA

NATIONAL SOCIETY

DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

Welcome.  We are proud members of  the National Society Daughters of the Revolution, a society organized in 1890 and incorporated by an Act of Congress in 1896.    NSDAR is a service organization of women with over 170,000 members in almost 3,000 chapters worldwide.   

OUR CHAPTER: 

Heritage Chapter was the first NSDAR Chapter organized in Canada.  It was confirmed on October 7, 1982 with 16 organizing members.  The name Heritage was chosen because our membership is made up of both American and Canadian citizens who share a common heritage.  We are a very active chapter with approximately 65 members and 15 associate members.   There are now six DAR Chapters in Canada.  Our five sister chapters are Bytown Chapter in Ottawa, Upper Canada Chapter in  Toronto, New Caledonia Chapter in Vancouver, Francis Duclos Chapter in Montreal and Canadian Prairies Chapter in Winnipeg.

LOCATION: 

Most of our members live in Western Canada in the Province of Alberta,  although we do have members residing in Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Ontario.  As well, we have several members residing in the U.S. that have a family connection to our chapter. 

 

Most of our meetings are held in the City of Calgary, which is nestled in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies about 90 minutes from Banff National Park.  We also have members from other parts of the province such as Edmonton, Wetaskiwin, Drumheller, Lethbridge, Pincher Creek, High River, Cochrane and more.

MEMBERSHIP: 

Membership in the NSDAR requires proven and documented lineage to a patriot of the American Revolution, however American Citizenship is not a requirement.   Heritage Chapter strives to keep our membership growing and welcomes any requests for information about our chapter.  We currently have many prospective members and can   offer some assistance with the necessary documentation to become an NSDAR member.  All chapters outside US borders are under the Units Overseas section of the NSDAR.  We also encourage associate membership from current members of other chapters.
