Hereditary Society Daughters of Founding Fathers of America 1606-1656
To obtain membership a woman needs these characteristics: to be at least eighteen (18) years of age; a citizen of the United States who is of good moral character and reputation; and who is lineally descended from her father's direct male line to the Founder ancestor who must have settled in any of the colonies now included in the United States prior to December 31, 1656. A current member of HSDFFA must submit a letter of recommendation, in writing regarding the assets of the prospect, to the President General, who will then consult with the Membership Committee. If the prospect is found to be acceptable, the President General will send a written invitation to her welcoming her to the Society once the approved proofs and fees have been collected.
Membership is by written invitation from the President General only.
