The Wood County Texas Genealogical Society’s $500 matching contribution to the Quitman Public Library along with the same amount contributed to the library by Uncle John’s Coffee House of Quitman will result in the library version of Ancestry.com being available to the general public (and society members) at the library in the very near future.
This will make many online databases available to researchers locally at no additional charge to each user.
We will probably be discussing fundraisers during the coming year so that we can renew the subscription in 2013 also. This is one of our major community service projects this year and , hopefully, in the future.

Prospects for Ancestry.com to be available soon at no charge for patrons at the Quitman Public Library are looking good with donations in the works to the library by the Uncle John’s Coffee House of Quitman and the Wood County Genealogical Society.
Uncle John’s Coffee House is an organization in Quitman which raises money for causes in Wood County with its second Saturday of the month meetings held at 7:00 p.m. in the Joy Hall at the First Methodist Church. Attendees contribute $7.00 a ticket each meeting to raise the funds which are awarded annually.
The $500 donation to the library will be matched by the genealogical society.
