I am going to be visiting Quitman with the hope of researching the various outlets available for ascertaining as much genealogical information as possible in a couple of days. Would you advise me regarding court records, land grants, and locating other historical documents? Any other locations you might recommend? I appreciate your time and assistance greatly.
Family researcher Annettee Reed has donated to the Genealogy Research Room of the Wood County Genealogical Society her extensive research on the Kirkpatrick, Minshew, and Ellison families, all early-day through present residents of Wood county. This also includes documents and pictures. The materials are in our processing area at the Quitman Public Library and will be evaluated for the best way to make them available to other researchers when they come to the library. Thanks to Annette for trusting us with her family research.
The society accepts donations of research and research materials. You can contact us by mail at P.O. Box 832, Quitman, Texas 75783 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire or make arrangements to preserve such materials. Society staff will make determinations of best use and display and disposal of the materials based on how they fit our research collection. When other libraries, museums, or repositories seem more appropriate, we will make decisions whether or not to offer to pass them on to those organziations.
