The Roger Sherman Chapter NSDAR members are women a lot like you. We come from diverse backgrounds and have a variety of interests. Our common bond is our lineal descent from patriots of the American Revolution.  Any woman, 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion or ethnic background, who can prove this lineage is eligible to join.
