The Daughters of the American Revolution Library in Washington D.C. isn’t just for descendants of Revolutionary War soldiers! As one of the largest genealogical libraries in the country, the Daughters of the American Revolution [DAR] Library has something for everyone tracing their family history. This presentation will give an overview of the resources available both on-site in D.C. as well as digital tools and resources available for free from wherever you normally do your family history work. Come find out how your family history is on our shelves!
