Use the Genealogy Collection

The library has an extensive collection of genealogical materials including local family histories, cemetery records and other items of interest.
Our genealogy section was a labor of love started by Librarian Myrtle Williams.  It has grown into a very extensive collection of obituary files, probate records, cemetery records, census records and newspapers on microfilm and donated family history records.  We are very proud to offer such a collection.  We also have local and county histories as well as a vertical file containing many items.

We are available to perform simple  searches called in, e-mailed, or even phoned in.  We charge .10 per page for regular copies, .25 for copies from the microfilm, and charges for postage to mail information back out.  We will do 1/2 hour for free.
