The DAR Library offers two different types of programming at DAR Headquarters. The Library Lecture Series features eminent authors discussing their historical work and the Genealogy 101 series features presentations on a variety of genealogical topics led by the professional genealogists on staff at the DAR or by other experienced genealogists. Both series are held throughout the month on Saturdays and are free to the public. See the upcoming schedule here:
