Appears to be a Harrington & Richardson, which really sums up all my information about it.

I agree with Bruce. Further, I believe that it's a Model 2.
Somewhere on it, there will be a note about its caliber, which will be either .32 or .38.
(Note that if it says ".38," this is not a modern .38 Special revolver. It was made for an older, less powerful cartridge called ".38 S&W." Some were made in ".38 Long," as well.)
It's not particularly valuable, except for its family association. Even in excellent condition, it would only bring in $150.00, or maybe a little more.
Clean any rust off of it using a piece of balsa wood and some oil. Do not use anything more abrasive than that. Use a bronze brush and oil inside its barrel.
If it's fully functional, it might be fun to shoot. This would be possible only if it's a .38 S&W, because none of the other loadings are made, nowadays.
