The Continental Congress Chapter of the PASSAR can
provide speakers for your group on related subjects.    
We usually meet four times a year in the York area.  
The annual meeting is at the Country Club of York, with the summer picnic at one of the county parks.

The SAR is a "lineage" society. This means that each member has traced their family tree back to an ancestor who supported the cause of American Independence during the years 1774-1783.  Ladies, please consider joining the DAR, children can join the CAR.

Do You Have an American Patriot Ancestor?

If you already know that you have such an ancestor, then you may want to continue on to our "Why We Join" page or even go straight to our "Where to Start" page.

If you aren't sure whether any of your ancestors lived in the United States during the Revolution, don't lose heart.  Many people who never set foot in the United States supported the American colonists struggle against British domination -- for example the king of Spain.  Many patriots (or their descendants moved to foreign lands and their descendants moved back later, not knowing their ancestors were here before.   Many French, German, and Spanish soldiers and sailors fought in support of American independence and returned home without making their descendants aware of their participation in gaining American independence.
