Welcome to our Dare Family web site! 

(see our Dare Family DNA results below!)
 

Dare Family Researchers have compiled a database of over 127,000 names over the last 90  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  91st  Annual Dare Family Association Reunion!

Saturday September 27th 2014

(Note the switch to the 4th Sat, this year only) - held at:

Union Presbyterian Church - Featherer Hall,
254 Shell Road (next to Rt 130), Carney's Point, NJ  08069
 

11:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Another 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,
elections, and other DFA reports and business.

This reunion is open to all Dare Families, regardless of your ancestral line!  Since we have linked over 80 % of the Dares in America by DNA, we'd like to meet you, if you have a Dare ancestry!  We have a historical display and archive that includes many Dare family lines.

DNA Info:

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.  So the Dyers are not our ancestors.

btw: If you have male Dare DNA results and you match, please let us know?  Thanks!
 
We use FamilyTreeDNA.com and have a Dare Family group discount there. They are the largest and most thorough DNA testing service.  Our 37 marker Dare DNA is as follows:
