The NSSAR is pleased to report that the SAR Genealogical Research Library has received an exciting new addition to its special collections.The gift, a book entitled Révolution de l’Amérique by M. l’Abbé Raynal, is a history of the American Revolution written entirely in French!
On March 27, 2012, the SAR Genealogical Research Library received its 2000th visitor. Darin Bussabarger of Corydon, IN was the important visitor. It was Mr. Bussabarger's first visit to the library and he joined the Friends of the Library program that day. Congratulations to the library on reaching another milestone!
November 15, 2011, was a day for the NSSAR to give thanks for the support given by the local community. The NSSAR hosted its 1st Annual Appreciation Luncheon in honor of its many volunteers and community supporters. As a non-profit organization, the SAR relies heavily on its volunteers to help fill in the gaps that come with having a small national staff. Without this help, the vital mission goals of education, history and patriotism would suffer greatly.
On Saturday, August 6, 2011, the SAR Genealogical Research library hosted its highest-attended genealogy workshop of its summer series. Jane-Rives Williams discussed in depth Kentucky’s unique tax lists, land warrants, and deeds and how one can better make use of them in genealogical research on Kentucky ancestors.
