The National Society, United States Daughters of 1812, was organized January 8, 1892. To become eligible for membership, a prospective member was required to trace her genealogy directly to an ancestor who had served in the United States military or civil service between 1784 and 1815. Chief among the Society's purposes was the dissemination of knowledge of American history. The Connecticut Society was organized March 2, 1906.
