Lineage Treasures at the DAR Library presented by Connie Lizak

May 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Join us as our speaker Connie Lizak presents her program on “Lineage Treasures at the DAR Library.”  The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) operates a major genealogical library at its headquarters building at 1776 D Street NW, Washington, DC.  Since its founding in 1896, the DAR 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 of 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 DAR Library is free and open to the public.

Connie will describe the resources available for researchers, especially the Genealogical Research System, which includes proven lineage research, collections of Bible records and previously unpublished genealogical records. Its resources are not just for Revolutionary War patriots!

Speaker will be in person. Meeting will be hybrid.
