Title: An Invitation to Join

Membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans is open to all male descendants of any veteran who served honorably in the Confederate armed forces. Membership can be obtained through either lineal or collateral family lines and kinship to a veteran must be documented genealogically. The minimum age for full membership is twelve, but there is no minimum for Cadet membership.


Title: How to Join The SCV

Applicants should submit an application form, along with a detailed genealogy describing their relationship to the veteran, and proof of his service. This should include his name, unit, state of service, and information as to his honorable service [killed / wounded / captured / discharged].

To obtain proof of his service, contact the archives of the state from which the soldier fought and obtain a copy of the veteran's military service record. All Southern state's archives have microfilm records of the soldiers who fought from that state, and a copy of the information can be obtained for a nominal fee. In addition, the former Confederate states awarded pensions to veterans and their widows. All of these records contain a wealth of information that can be used to document military service.

Do not be frightened, the more you know about your ancestor - the more likely you are to find his records and supporting information. You will very likely find the search is easier than you think, and it will be a most rewarding and moving personal experience. We will even help with the research of your ancestry to a Confederate veteran. We have professional genealogists at the Division level and most camps offer genealogy research for prospective members.

The North Carolina Division is composed of over 100 individual chapters, called "Camps," which are located throughout the state. For information about the camp nearest you, please contact the following:

Andrew Johnson, 2nd Lt. Commander
Phone: 704-682-1213

Or, you contact the camp nearest you directly by locating it in our camp listings pages that are arraigned alphabetically by location.

Benefits of membership include participation in local, state and national events; a membership certificate; a subscription to the Confederate Veteran magazine, published bimonthly; and a subscription to the Carolina Confederate newsletter, published bimonthly.

You will also be eligible to have the Sons of Confederate Veterans specialized license plate for your private vehicle registered in North Carolina. Best of all, you'll be helping to preserve the honorable memory of the Confederate fighting man.

Application for membership is best accomplished through a local Sons of Confederate Veterans camp in your area. If you are not a resident of North Carolina, you can still join a camp in North Carolina. If you need help finding out who your Confederate ancestor was, please contact our genealogist.
