Hi All the Lists,
Many of you will be quite surprised to find how much Genealogy there is of
direct interest to you in your local library. In the Library Genealogy
you are quite likely to find specific surname books with your own lines
(For example, the Kellenberger Library in New Bern NC has 5 (more now??)
Wetherington Books, all different but all helpful. They would also be very
pleased to receive your own Gen 'book', even if it is softbound and
by just yourself, just as you will send it to your family. Other prominent
libraries, such as those in MD, VA, PA and the SLC Mormon library, are also
worth an individual trip.
Also present in your library are many other Gen books w/helpful &
info. Perhaps you do not know that there MANY specific Surname studies that
contained in the Library of Congress, the Index (4 volumes with 1976 & other
dated 'update' vols also) for which may be contained in your own Library.
are just a few, for just 2 families; I lacked time to look for more, which
certainly there, or are avail Inter-Library loan (ask Librarian):

unk if any are in the "GENEALOGIES IN THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS."].
Before the Library Trip, printout a copy of what you now have in your
computer files, and/or perhaps better, find a few of the more comprehensive
email messages/compendiums in the Archives of your Surname List:
http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/surname/%5b1st ltr your surname]/[your
and print them out to take with you, along w/a note book and a floppy disk
case you find something to download. Also take a camera - photo of the
will assist you to re-locate where you found the good stuff. While there,
who the local Gen experts are in the Library - they are usually quite happy
show you how to get to the best places/books/ sites for research.
Often, your Librarian will be more than anxious to assist. This is the kind
of research for which many of them entered the field. Best is to catch them
other than rush times (visiting schools, after school), such as early AM,
they feel free to dig in with you.
Best of Luck and let us know how much it helps.
