Topics Users Searched in Genealogy Center

One of the measures of what is being researched in our genealogical collection at the Quitman library is topics of books left (at our request) for re-shelving. A Tally is kept of each book placed back on the shelves. The following information is from member’s tally from November 2008 to early May 2010. We realize that sometimes people do re-shelve books and they do not appear in this report, but this is a good look at where most research is being done.

Chart 1 is a summary of the tally of materials by topic. Charts 2 and 3 are showing relative use by percentage of materials in that topic area.
