Society Saturday - Daughters of Founders and Patriots General Court

The 117th General Court of the National Society Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America started with a Banquet.

The Banquet speaker was Eric Grundset, the Director of the DAR Library.  I had the pleasure of sitting with him at dinner and enjoyed talking with him about our genealogical experiences.

His talk was all about what is new at the DAR Library.  He highlighted the digitization of the GRC volumes, the availability of supporting documentation, and some of the new publications of the library such as the Revolutionary War research series by state.  

Eric was honored to receive the Golden Shield Award from our Society.  This award is given to a nonmember who has done exemplary work in historic preservation.

Following General Court, some members traveled to the Women in Military Service Monument for a Wreath Laying in honor of all the women who have served our country.
