During those hours all records belonging to the society are available for research and any help that we can give a person in locating records in our Genealogy Library


Some of our resources are available at all times that 
the library is open. We have other resources that are only available when a volunteer member is present. If you can not be there on Tuesday, other times can be arranged by appointment. Usually on short notice. The regular library staff has a list of the telephone numbers to call.
