Research and Genealogy

We have many books on a variety of subjects. This list is a small sampling of those we find helpful in topical and genealogical research.
The DAR Index is a list of men and women whose contribution to the Revolution has been documented. It includes the date and State of both birth and death, name of spouse(s), military rank and State of service, and pension (if applicable).
We have 5 volumes of New England Historical and Genealogical Society indexes, listed by surname. The index lists volume and page number for the individual. The actual information is available on CD. These cover a period from the 17th century to the 19th century.
