DAR chapter donates books to library
Over the past seven months, members of the Narrow Passage chapter of te Daughters of the American Revolution have donated five books to the Shenandoah County Library in Edinburg on genealogy and history resources focusing on the American Revolution and Virginia history.
The book “Shenandoah County, Virginia: A Study of the 1860 Census (Volume 10)” is part of an in-depth study of the county just before the Civil War. Other volumes of the study are also available at the library.
Other books contributed were researched and published by the organization — “America’s Women in the Revolutionary Era 1760-1790: a History Through Bibliography,” a three-volume encyclopedic bibliography that shows how historians’ understanding of these women and girls has developed over time;and “Virginia in the American Revolution,” a 1,200-plus page comprehensive source guide for genealogists and historians.
Members of the chapter presented county library archivist Zach Hottel with the last volume on Oct. 17. The books are available in the Shenandoah Room.
