CHANCELLOR LIVINGSTON CHAPTER NSDAR INSTALLS NEW MEMBERS SEPTEMBER 26
At the Chancellor Livingston Chapter New York State Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) annual luncheon at Savona’s Restaurant in Red Hook, N.Y., two new members were installed: Erin O’Neil Drost of Staatsburg and Melodye Moore of Rhinebeck.
Any woman 18 years or older who can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence is eligible to join the DAR. Each DAR applicant must provide genealogical research that documents her lineage back to an ancestor from the Revolutionary War era. The application and source documentation must provide proof of relation for each generation going back to the Patriot ancestor, as well as documentation for the Revolutionary War service of her Patriot. The applications, supplemental applications and source documentation of the more than 920,000 women who have joined the DAR since its founding, provide a wealth of genealogical information for the public and those women wishing to become DAR members.”
The Chancellor Livingston Chapter NSDAR celebrated the chapter's 100th anniversary on Saturday, October 14, 2017. Its chapter house, located in Rhinebeck on Livingston Street, is The General Montgomery and Janet Livingston House. The chapter has placed numerous commemorative plaques in the Northern Dutchess area, held scholarship essay contests, supported schools for underprivileged
children, hosted tours of our chapter house for community school children as well as adults, and adhered to the DAR mission to promote patriotism, education, and historic preservation.
