Wonderful article. You can see the changing face of the DAR. Congrats to all of the Daughters. I am a proud daughter of the Jack Jouett Chapter. It just goes to show you somethings just take time. We are not our grandmothers chapters. If anyone has questions about becoming a member, benefits and the research feel free to ask. You can also visit the official DAR webpage at dar.org
“There are many African-American women who are not aware that they have Patriot ancestors,” Allen-Craft said. “An estimated 5,000 black soldiers fought on the patriot side during the Revolutionary War. Their female ancestors are entitled to become members of the CTDAR. My goal is to assist African-Americans, as well as any other resident of Norwalk who believes she is a descendant, become a member.”
As the new regent, Allen-Craft said she is looking forward to growing the chapter’s membership.
“Our registrar will help compile the research material and submit the required paperwork needed to become members of the Norwalk-Village Green Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. We welcome all inquiries.”
