      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
      section,
      you are quite likely to find specific surname books with your own lines
      listed.
      (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
      published'
      by just yourself, just as you will send it to your family. Other prominent
      state
      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 &
      interesting
      info. Perhaps you do not know that there MANY specific Surname studies that
      are
      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.
      Here
      are just a few, for just 2 families; I lacked time to look for more, which
      are
      certainly there, or are avail Inter-Library loan (ask Librarian):

      GENEALOGIES IN THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS:
      Carruthers Family 1934
      Carruthers Family 1934, (-76 upd)
      Carothers Family, by John Carothers, Dallas TX 1937
      Carruthers Family, by John Gillespie, Eng 1905
      Dare Genealogical Chart Capt Wm Dare (?)
      Dare Family, Genealogy of (Chicago 1901)
      Dare Family History, (NY 1939)
      [Recently Deceased Robt Dare of NJ, the best friend & Treasure of Dares
      throuhout the world, has published 3 Dare books, based primarily on Capt
      Dare,
      unk if any are in the "GENEALOGIES IN THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS."].
      etc, etc

      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/w/witherington.html
      http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/surname/%5b1st ltr your surname]/[your
      surname].html
      http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/surname/d/dare.html
      etc, etc
      and print them out to take with you, along w/a note book and a floppy disk
      in
      case you find something to download. Also take a camera - photo of the
      library
      will assist you to re-locate where you found the good stuff. While there,
      ask
      who the local Gen experts are in the Library - they are usually quite happy
      to
      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
      at
      other than rush times (visiting schools, after school), such as early AM,
      when
      they feel free to dig in with you.

      Best of Luck and let us know how much it helps.

      Barry Wetherington
