Daughters of the American Revolution

I am trilled to announce that the heritage book, “The Maternal Ancestors and Family History of Barbara Ann Page Stocks”, which I designed for Leanne Stocks Baraban, was admitted into The Daughters of the American Revolution Library in Washington. D.C. The DAR Library is very selective about accepting books to their inventory and it is an honor to be approved.

The library of the Daughters of the American Revolution is one of the most valuable research facilities in the country. The DAR Library was founded in 1896 as a collection of genealogical and historical publications for the use of staff genealogists verifying application papers for the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution. Shortly after 1900 the growing collection was opened to the public and has remained so ever since.

This is a page from the book about Frank Miller. What a treasure it is that the family still had his diary which he kept while he served in the Civil War. He even spoke about the death of Abraham Lincoln.
