WOODVILLE – Currently FamilySearch, a non-profit family history organization dedicated to gathering, preserving, and sharing the world’s records, is in Woodville digitizing the Whitmeyer Library’s genealogical documents. This is a free service to the Whitmeyer Library as well as other organizations.
FamilySearch has sent volunteers and equipment to our library at Heritage Village to do the work. Our Librarian Carol Shields is assisting with identifying family related information in our library. When the project is completed, the digitized data will be made available on FamilySearch’s website, FamilySearch.org/archives. In addition, our Library will receive their free copy of the digitized data to use on our website and to make available for researchers in our Whitmeyer Genealogy Library.
The Whitmeyer Genealogy Library, which is located in the Gift Shop at Heritage Village, is open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays, appointment only, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., unless Heritage Village is closed. Call for an appointment, at 409-283-2272, so the librarian is ready to assist you with your search.
