Frank Stringfellow Camp #822
A Southern Alternative in Northern Virginia

Join the SCV

Standard Membership

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 direct or collateral family lines and kinship to a veteran must be documented genealogically. The minimum age for membership is 12. (Female descendants of such Confederate Veterans are eligible to join our sister organization 'The United Daughters of the Confederacy'.)

Proof of kinship to a Confederate soldier can take many forms. The easiest method is to 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.

Affiliate Membership

For those that are unable to join the SCV as regular members, either because they do not have Confederate ancestors or have not yet located them, there is another membership option. This is an Affiliate Membership. You can become an Affiliate Member by filling out a simple application and once this is accepted by a 2/3 vote of the camp and the camp dues of $10 are paid you will be a member of the camp. Affiliate membership allows you to participate in all camp activities with a few exceptions specified in our constitution.

Associate Membership

Associate membership is available to any regular member of the SCV whose primary membership is with another camp. Associate membership requires filling out an application, acceptance by 2/3 vote of the camp, and payment of camp dues of $10.
