Daughters of 1812 society forming


We are so very excited to announce that the National Society United States Daughters of 1812, a lineage society, is organizing a Montana State Society. Membership is available to women who prove lineal descent to an ancestor, who, between 1784 to 1815, rendered civil, military or naval service to our country, rendered material aid to the U.S. Army or Navy, or who participated in the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

The purposes of this society are to promote patriotism, and to preserve and increase knowledge of the history of the American people. This is done by preserving documents and relics, marking historic spots, recording family histories and traditions, celebrating patriotic anniversaries, and teaching and emphasizing the heroic deeds of the civil, military, and naval life of those who molded this government between the close of the American Revolution and the close of the War of 1812, from 1784 to 1815, inclusive.

If you live in Montana, Idaho, North Dakota, or South Dakota, and believe you may be descended from such an ancestor, would like help with your genealogical research, and/or would like to be Charter Member of the Montana State Society, please email us at

— Kathleen Castle, Hamilton
