The National Society of the Daughters of the American Colonists is an enthusiastic and friendly lineage society with members that are descendants of residents of colonial America. Our ancestors served in the military, provided goods to the troups, and worked in a variety of professions. There are 27 areas of qualification for verified service before July 4, 1776.
The Society is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to honoring patriotism, preserving American history, and promoting education. Our members participate in a variety of volunteer efforts in their communities along with researching and highlighting our colonial ancestors. Go to the National DAC website for information on Membership Eligibility.
Our North Carolina State Society Daughters of the American Colonists carries out the objectives of the National Society within our state.
