DAR Library Eliminates Entrance Fee



We like short and sweet and especially when it involves $ or not having to pay $.

From Eric G. Grundset, Library Director, DAR Library, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, we learn ...

After many decades of having an entrance fee, the DAR Library in Washington, D. C. has dropped the fee effective immediately. We want to encourage usage by more people who were sometimes deterred by having to pay a fee to use the library.

The DAR Library has many online and offline resources of interesting to genealogists.  Check out all it has to offer and when you are in DC, do pay a visit.  

As stated on the website ...

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 185,000 books, 300,000 research files, thousands of manuscript items, and special collections of African American, Native American, and women’s history, genealogy and culture. Nearly 30,000 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.
