The DAR Library Researching the Revolution and Beyond
DAR Library Director Eric Grundset will present a program at Bull Run Regional Library on Thursday, September 11, at 11:00 a.m., describing one of the nation’s largest collections devoted to genealogy and local history.
Since its founding in 1896, the Daughters of the American Revolution Library has grown into a specialized collection of American genealogical and historical manuscripts and publications, as well as powerful on-site databases. The DAR Library collection contains over 225,000 books, 10,000 research files, thousands of manuscript items, and special collections related to African American, Native American, and women’s history, genealogy and culture. Nearly 40,000 family histories and genealogies comprise a major portion of the book collection, many of which are unique or available in only a few libraries in the country. The library, open to all, is located in Washington, D.C. Non-members pay a small research fee.
This program is hosted by RELIC (the Ruth E. Lloyd Information Center) a special collection for genealogy and local history at the Bull Run Regional Library.
