Under the guidance and in-depth research work of Eric G. Grundset, Director of Library Publications, the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is publishing a series of guides related to Revolutionary War research in various states. The DAR website states this “provides detailed information on the availability of manuscript and archival material that exists for the state for the period of the Revolutionary War along with listings of historical and genealogical studies that have been published and which supplement the original sources. It is the most extensive gathering of such information ever published, and researchers will find it an essential resource with which to identify materials and studies located in many scattered libraries and archives.” These books are several hundred pages long, have maps, and are indexed. Each is available in print or a PDF edition.
The already published volumes are on New York, South Carolina, Georgia, Rhode Island, Virginia (includes West Virginia, Kentucky and the Old Northwest), Massachusetts/Maine, and North Carolina. The volume for Connecticut, the eighth book in the series, will be available any day. If you are interested in this or others please check the DAR Store’s webpage at: dar.org/national-society/about-dar/dar-publications.
The Georgia printed volume is presently out of print and will likely be reprinted in a couple of months. Next up is the book for Pennsylvania, the ninth in the series. This will be followed in the next year or so by the remaining states: New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, and New Hampshire/Vermont.
