Some Very Old Area Family Records From Early Willard Library Files

When Willard Library opened the second floor thirty-four years ago, it was designated the Special Collections Department. Genealogical Material transferred from the first floor was a microfilm reader on a stand with drawers, and a file cabinet. The Special Collections Department grew rapidly and, in time, a microfilm camera was purchased. The material in the old file drawers was microfilmed. The files are genealogical research done over thirty-five years ago. In many cases, the information is not documented. However, their value is the many clues of family data. They are recollections, family charts, and family stories as recorded by a later generation researcher.

Before the files were filmed, I copied the names from the index tab of the folders. These paper files are no longer available but they are on film in the Special Collections Department.
