Week 8 – Genealogy Libraries

Clayton House | Houston Public Library

Genealogy libraries (and dedicated departments in regular libraries) are true treasures in the family history community.  Tell us about your favorite genealogy library. What or who makes it special?

This challenge runs from Sunday, February 19, 2012 through Saturday, February 25, 2012.

I am fortunate enough to live in Houston which has the Clayton Genealogical Library. Here, I’ve been able to trace numerous lines on both sides of my family tree.

Also, I’d like to give a shout out to the Victoria Public Library of Victoria, Texas. Not only did this place offer free WiFi and friendly, helpful staff, they also had local history and genealogical resources. I even saw a picture of a late relative.
