That means the qualifying ancestors extend well beyond England and Scotland. Here are the few more common options:
- Spanish: The Daughters of the American Revolution actually has a task force addressing Spanish support of the War.
- French: Deb Duay has a great website covering French-Canadian patriots.
- African-American/Native American: The Daughters of the American Revolution has a publication with information on African-American and Native American patriots.
In short, if your ancestor was in the colonies or in an area that supported the American cause and they supported the American cause, there’s a good chance they’d qualify.
