Acceptable Service by a Patriot Ancestor

A patriot ancestor must have contributed service in at least one of the following activities:

Collect and Organize Your Documentation

You will need proper documentation to prove your lineage. This documentation includes
certified birth, marriage and death certificates, wills, federal census and other records.
Printed genealogies may be accepted as proof only if the genealogy is adequately documented.
However, it is best to rely on primary documents, i.e. a birth certificate clearly showing
parents’ names or a will in which the writer clearly identifies a child through whom the
applicant’s lineage is traced. You will also need adequate documentation which proves
that your ancestor provided eligible service.

Most applicants join a local chapter so they can attend the chapter meetings and other
functions of that chapter. You may join any chapter in the state or become a "member
at large", with no affiliation to any local chapter. Contact the State Registrar or the Registrar
of the local chapter you wish to join for assistance. They will be able to provide you with the
proper forms to make your application. The following documents are provided by the National
Society for the use of prospective members. You may save them to your hard drive for your use.
