The Dana Parks, Jr.
Memorial Lending Library
One of the benefits of Parke Society membership is our private library of books and manuscripts about various Park/e/s lineages. Much of the Society's original impressive collection of genealogical and historical material was acquired through gifts from our Parke Society members. The Dana Parks, Jr. Memorial Library continues to receive books (manuscripts, printed materials, etc.) from members, along with funding from the Society toward book (and CD) purchases.
Most of the books and materials listed below are available for loan to members. Please contact the custodian of the PS Library to see if the items you wish to borrow are currently available.
