Veterans History Project This project is to honor all our military personnel-past and present, war and peace time. A photo and military records (discharge, diaries, citations, awards, etc.) will be greatly appreciated as well as information about family (parents, spouse, children, grandparents, etc.). All information and pictures will become a part of the permanent records housed in the Odom Library. This is an on-going, volunteer project and is an important part of our heritage. Donations and/or memorial gifts are appreciated.

Our collection grows and changes every day. Please call or write for more information. You may also use the Ask a Genealogist link to request help. Due to the Genealogical interest in our Library materials and a shortage of staff, we are not able to handle tremendous number of requests for family research information. Specific request regarding items in our collection and or copies of specific pages will still be honored.

All books and materials located in the Genealogical Library are not able to be checked out.
You are able to use the materials in our Library for as long as you may need them.
