52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy - Week 8

52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy - Week 8

52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy 2012 prompts suggested by Amy Coffin; thanks, Amy!

Week 8 – Genealogy Libraries:
Genealogy libraries (and dedicated departments in regular libraries) are true treasures in the family history community.  Tell us about your favorite genealogy library. What or who makes it special?

This challenge runs from Sunday, February 19, 2012 through Saturday, February 25, 2012.

Three answers to this one:

  1. The one that has what I am looking for at the time.  ;-)
  2. The Local History and Genealogy Department at the Springfield-Greene County Library - the closest big collection, with extensive local information, along with a fine website.
  3. The Midwest Genealogy Center at the Mid-Continent Public Library in Independence, MO. Over the years we used it a lot.

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. Ha! I love you #1. Sounds like my kind of library.

  2. And, I'm always looking for the best one... just too good an answer to pass up. Thanks for the comment!! ;-)
