52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: AT THE LIBRARY

Amy Johnson Crow challenges us to remember our ancestors and their families through this task: 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks.  I completed '52 Ancestors' in 2014 & here I go again. This post is in response to that challenge. The topic for this week is ‘AT THE LIBRARY.

52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: AT THE LIBRARY

Family History Library, Salt Lake City, Utah

This is a great topic! I am often AT THE LIBRARY. I find it much more satisfying to find evidences of my family in a library than on line. For me, being able to hold a book with my family information printed on its pages, gives me a more concrete link to those people from times past. Here are a few libraries I have visited & links to the posts I have written about those visits:

Ansonia Library                                   Ansonia, CT

Charlotte Mecklenburg Library           Charlotte, NC

Derby Public Library                           Derby, CT

Family History Library                        Salt Lake City, UT

Franklinton Library                             Franklinton, LA

Lancaster Library                                 Lancaster, SC

Orangeburg County Library                Orangeburg, SC

Pike-Amite-Walthall Library               McComb, MS

Rappahannock Library                      Washington, VA

There are many more libraries I’d like to visit and I’d like to return to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City where I can search for many family lines all in one place.

Don't delay. Find yourself AT THE LIBRARY today!
