    I am in the process of becoming a member of the DAR. My sister is already in, so it shouldn't be too hard.

    I too am about to apply for membership. My Uncle is in it so it also shouldn't be a big deal.

    I like to randomly search ebay. Anyways, one of the things I consistently find in reference to SAR members is that they sell a beautiful SAR medal along with a copy of the genealogy report. I was wondering if they just give those to you?

    I am excited about joining though. Ive become a Rev War junky and then I come to find out I have 4 relatives who have fought in the war. Awesome, really.

    Yes I am a Son of the Revolution, but I am not a "member" of the organization.

    I don't think they just give them to you. My sister didn't get any pin, but did get a beautiful certificate she has framed and hung in her family room. Maybe you get a pin for being in for a certain number of years or something.

    I am a Rev War junkie, too. I adore George Washington. When I started researching my family history, I found that my ancestor and my husband's ancestor were at Valley Forge together. Strange, isn't it? I'd like to visit someday.
