VIRGINIA IN THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION: A SOURCE GUIDE FOR GENEALOGISTS AND HISTORIANS

Everyone,

I am very pleased to announce the publication of my latest book in the DAR Library's source guide series for the original thirteen states. This massive volume is Virginia in the American Revolution: A Source Guide for Genealogists and Historians. At over 1,300 pages, this guide covers not only the modern Commonwealth of Virginia, but also the State of West Virginia, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and the area of the Old Northwest during the period of the Revolutionary War. It is chock full of descriptions of records, articles, books, theses, dissertations, manuscripts, etc., and provides the locations of unique materials. [This book weighs more than either of my granddaughters did when they were born - 8 lbs. We'll see if granddaughter no. 3 weighs more in just a couple of weeks!!! :) ]

If interested, please use this link to find out the ordering details from the DAR Store. And, yes, they do accept purchase orders from libraries!!!

The previous volumes for New York, South Carolina, Georgia, and Rhode Island as also available. All source guides may be purchased in either printed form or as a PDF for easy searching. Both versions include the printed index.

Massachusetts with Maine is well underway for publication later this year. Then we do North Carolina and the remaining states.
