One observation--a two inch snowfall can cripple the DC area. The area is not accustomed to snow and nobody seems to know what to do with it, unlike us hardy New Englanders who certainly know now if they didn't before last winter.

Centrally located for all tourist sites,easy walk to the National Archives., etc. They have a group rate for minimum ten rooms of $85 plus tax. Parking is $10 a day. This is cheap for downtown DC . Meeting rooms available. Used for a lot of groups and school trips. See their web site www.Hotel-Harrington.com > > I visit the DAR library regularly and would be glad to show researchers where to find things. Outside of Salt Lake City, this library is the best. Open stacks, self-service photocopying,. In addition to books, there is a microfilm center with the Federal censuses, Rev. War pension records and many other documents. A large collection of unpublished records in the Genealogical Records Committee books sent in by DAR chapters in the states. The library catalog is on-line <a href="http://dar.library.net">http://dar.library.net</a> Open Mon-Fri 8:30-4.00 .Sat 9-5. Closed Sunday. Fee for non-DAR/SAR members is now $6 per day. > > I find the Library of Congress much harder to use, since there is usually a long wait after you request a book, and then often the slip comes back "not on shelf" > > Don't come to Washington for research mid July . You will run into the annual DAR Continental Congress and the library is closed to non-members. > > Carolyn Mitchell > Bethesda, Maryland > > ______________________________
