Welcome to our Dare Family web site!
(see our Dare Family DNA results below!)
Dare Family Researchers have compiled a database of over 131,000 names over the last 96 years! If you think you are related to us, you have a lot of documented cousins!! :) Hi cuz!
Come meet your 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th cousins at our 96th Annual Dare Family Association Reunion!
Saturday September 21st, 2019
(hopefully) held at:
Union Presbyterian Church - Upstairs Dining Hall,
Handicapped Access to the dining area is via a rear entrance.
Others may enter there, or via the front steps entrance, and then head right upstairs.
11:00 AM to 2:30 PM
This is a great opportunity for Food, Fun, Fellowship, and the sharing of photos and information with your Dare kin!
We visit for a bit, browse Dare Family historic displays, then share a delicious home style meal, followed by a discussion time,
If you cannot attend, you can still join the Dare Family Association and help support our research and web sites!
You can send $5 (or more) to Wendy at the address below, or via PayPal to: Treasurer@DareFamily.com
This enables us to continue connecting Dares worldwide!
Important side note: Over 80% of the Dares in America are not descended from a Dyer Family Line, as some people once thought before DNA tests of Dyers and Dare were compared! They are radically different. (there are a few Dares who changed their name to Dyer, though.) However the Dyers are not our ancestors.
btw: If you have male Dare DNA results and you match, please let us know? Thanks!
