Membership Information & Applications
Membership is open to men, women, and children of ALL ages who are lineal descendants of a “farmer” living within the present boundaries of the United States between July 4, 1776 – July 4, 1914.
A "farmer" is a person engaged in varying capacities in the agricultural industry, including but not limited to farmer, rancher, farm hand, or person that owned a farm. The fact that an ancestor has another profession or
occupation does not prevent that ancestor from being a “farmer” where requirements are met.
A census record citing the ancestor’s occupation as farmer is sufficient evidence of the definition of “farmer.”
Membership inquiries are welcome.
An invitation to apply may be extended by the President National. The National Society Descendants of American Farmers does not discriminate on any basis.
On behalf of the National Executive Board, we would like to sincerely thank you for your membership in NSDOAF. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
