Pamela Baster will give an overview of the resources available on the DAR Library’s Genealogical Research System, known as the GRS. She will describe the different resources that can be used at home and how access at home differs from access at the DAR Headquarters in Washington DC. She will present tips and tricks on how to make the most of your research from home, and when to decide it’s time to go to the DAR Library for an in-person visit.
Pamela Baster is the manuscripts curator for the DAR Library's manuscript collections. She studied history at Grove City College then graduated from the University of Maryland with her MLS and a concentration in Archives and Digital Curation. She has worked at the DAR for the past 3 years. One of her favorite aspects of her job is adding new family Bibles to the DAR Collections. Pamela has wanted to be an archivist since she did a genealogy project when she was 13 years old and learned her family had held on to family papers dating to before the Civil War.
