The Royal Auvergne Society, a non-profit association in Paris, France, is affiliated to the National Society of the Children of the American Revolution (N.S.C.A.R.), whose headquarters is located in Washington, D.C.
The Royal Auvergne Society was named on February 2, 1968 in Paris, France. At the initiative of DAR member Genevieve Sanua-Seymour, the Society was organized on January 23, 1969, with 12 active members. Its registration was confirmed by the N.S.C.A.R. on February 23, 1969.
The goal of the association is to maintain and develop the ties between France and the United States that have their roots in the American Revolution, when France came to the aid of the fledgling republic in winning independence from Britain.
As required by the N.S.C.A.R. statutes : qualifying members may belong to the Society from birth to their 22nd birthday, when they may transfer to the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) or the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR), both of which have active and dynamic chapters in France.
The Royal Auvergne Society has grown from its early beginnings to an official membership of over 20 members, with ages ranging from 1 to 20 years-old.
