The Silver Creek Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution will hold a meeting on Saturday, Feb. 13 at 10 a.m. in the auditorium of the Latzer Library. The program will be on women’s health issues.
The National Society DAR has one of the world’s premier genealogical resource centers. Did you know that recently, after nearly a decade of volunteer work by DAR members and staff, the DAR put its Genealogical Research System online? The GRC is a combination of several databases created in recent years to organize the large quantity of information that the DAR has collected since its inception in 1890. The GRC includes four databases as well as recommended resources for genealogical research and access to the online DAR Library catalog. The databases can be accessed on the Society’s website at: dar.org/library and click on “Online Research,” then “DAR Genealogical Research System.”
Additionally, the Illinois DAR Genealogical Library Collection is housed at the C.E. Brehm Library in Mount Vernon. Winter months are an ideal time to look for your own Revolutionary War ancestor.
