Research at DAR Library Now Free to the Public

The DAR Library, one of the country’s premier genealogical research facilities, is now FREE to all researchers. In October, the entrance fee for use of the Washington, D.C. family history library was eliminated as part of ongoing efforts to make the extensive DAR genealogical resources more accessible to the public.

“We are so pleased to be able to now offer the DAR Library resources free of charge,” says Eric Grundset, Director of the DAR Library. “We invite and encourage anyone who may have been deterred in the past by the usage fee to come visit and explore our vast holdings. You never know what you may be able to discover about your family at the DAR Library.”

Huggins Email Form Script Help

For many years now I have used and highly recommended James Huggins email form script. I use it on each of my sites for the Contact Form and the Family Group Sheet. Examples include:

Huggins’ Email Form Script is a free PHP script to process Web Forms, specifically those forms which accept information and send an email with that information. It is ideal for people who don’t know how to write a script, don’t want to use a script that exposes their email to spambots, want more features than their current script offers or who are using FrontPage Server Extensions which are going away.

James script is and always has been FREE. It comes complete with documentation and a sample form. You can install and modify it yourself at no cost. If you are not comfortable installing the script and getting the form to work, James is now offering a service to do a simple basic install of the script on your site for a fee. You can read more on Huggins’ Email Form Script as well as download all of the files needed. If you want James to install the script for you, please contact him.
