Rosette Worn by SAR Members


  The Sons of the American Revolution share a love of country and a rich heritage.  The goal of the organization is to promote historical preservation, national patriotism, and education.

   The pursuit of your ancestors is a wonderful adventure!  Do you know who your Patriot Ancestor is or where your family was during the 1700s?  Perhaps you have a quilt that belonged to your great-grandmother; silver, china, or a piece of furniture that has been in the family for several generations; an old photograph or document dating back many, many years ago.  Genealogy brings history -YOUR history - to life.  It is considerably more than just names and dates.  It's about people.  It's about family.  It's about your heritage.

   Genealogy defines who we are, and gives our lives greater meaning and purpose.  By preserving the past, we are securing our future through affirming that as they lived, so do we live, for our future generations.  As you discover more about your ancestry, you enrich your own life and continue a legacy that can be passed on to your children and grandchildren.
