Membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans is open to all male descendants of any veteran who served honorably in the Confederate armed forces. Membership can be obtained through either lineal or collateral family lines and kinship to a veteran must be documented genealogically. The minimum age for full membership is 12, but there is no minimum for Cadet membership.
If you already know of a Confederate Veteran who is your Ancestor, that is outstanding!
If you don't know of a Confederate Veteran who is your Ancestor but are reasonably certain that you have one in your Ancestry, or if you know that your Family was living in the South during The War Between The States, we have some ability to perform genealogical research to see if you do have a Confederate Veteran in your Ancestry. In this case, please write down your Ancestry as far back as you can and we will try and take it from there. We generally need to know your Ancestors AT LEAST as far back as 1930 and of course farther back if possible. It also helps to know where your Ancestors lived and where they are buried.
Currently dues are $45 per year.
