Search Public Libraries for more Genealogical Data

Search Public Libraries for more Genealogical Data

Macon Memorial LibraryA surprising amount of genealogy records rest in local libraries, genealogy books, microfilm and other materials. Remember, as these facilities are a subject of donations and budgetary receipts, their holdings vary. But this is good. For one. people have put onto microfilm their diaries, family histories, bibles, cemetery and church records, as a starter. The LDS church has thousands of microfiche of donated genealogies. What I am saying is that there is a lot of miscellaneous genealogy out there which is not on any one's website. At the Georgia State Archives, the loose genealogies are contained in folders. The Georgian Room of the Cobb County Library houses collections of loose-leaf quarterlies for a number of States. By far, the Washington Memorial Library has the largest microfilm collection for most States. Just a starter for ideas. Researchers are still hanging out at the library!
