The Elizabeth Snyder-Continental Chapter was formed from two DAR chapters. On July 2, 2002, Elizabeth Snyder Chapter, based in Dunellen, and Continental Chapter, based in Plainfield, merged to form Elizabeth Snyder-Continental Chapter. To learn more about the history of this chapter, including its two original organizations, click here.

The members of Elizabeth Snyder-Continental Chapter are active women from the central New Jersey area who care about community service, preserving history, educating children, as well as honoring and supporting those who serve our nation.

We welcome prospective members and guests who would like to attend our meetings. Please contact our chapter regent, Beth Scheiderman, or our registrar, Ruth Ryno, who will be happy to provide complete information about the date, time, and location of our meetings.

If you have a patriot of the American Revolution in your ancestry, we would love to have you visit and to join us. If you believe you are descended from a Revolutionary War patriot but are not sure, please know that visitors are always welcome, and we will help you trace your ancestor. It is important to note that the term "patriot" includes not only those who served in the army, navy, or a militia but also those men and women who provided funds, food, livestock, shelter, medical attention, or in any way furthered the cause of American independence.

Our chapter will be happy to provide assistance to you in proving your descent from a patriot of the American Revolution, and in establishing your eligibility for DAR membership. We can also provide you with genealogical advice if you are just beginning your family search. For assistance please contact our registrar, Ruth Ryno.
