Elmer's Genealogy Library Closing

Elmer's Genealogy Library in Madison, Florida, will be merging with the Huxford Genealogical Society Library located in Homerville, Georgia, in 2010. Members of Elmer’s Genealogy Library will be invited to transfer their membership to the new and larger library. The new library will be named the Folks Huxford and Elmer Spear Genealogical Library and will be managed by the Huxford Genealogical Society. Homerville is located on US 84 between Valdosta and Waycross.

The merger and transfer of the contents of Elmer’s Library to the Huxford Genealogical Society Library in Homerville, Georgia includes over 30,000 books, nearly 4,000 rolls of microfilm and over 10,000 sheets of Microfiche. The actual transfer will begin as soon as the City of Homerville completes the renovation of the building that will house both libraries.
