1. I think it used to be an organization that enhanced one's social standing.

Many years ago (the '30s) my grandmother spent a lot of time hunting down proof of an ancestor who'd fought in the revolution so she could join the DAR. It was pretty Republican, too. I have no idea what they're like or what they do now.
