USGW/TXGW County Coordinator
The County of Hunt, Texas
Greetings, all! I just joined the list. I am actually a county coordinator for the Texas/US Genweb Project for Hunt County, Texas, but many of my personal research interests are in Appanoose County, Iowa.
I was recently in Appanoose County and noticed that the Drake Library in Centerville had a number of books apparrently published by the genealogical society such as indexes to naturalization records, census trancriptions/indexes, and volumes of history. I am curious as to whether or not any of these are still avaliable for purchase? If so, I would greatly appreciate it if someone would let me know how to acquire copies.
Also, I frequently research at the Dallas Public Library about 80 miles from my home. They are considered the largest and best genealogical library in the South, and people come from all over Texas to research there. They have extensive sections on each state, including Iowa. They also have materials on almost every county in the nation. Nevertheless, they only have two or three books on Appanoose County, one being the hard bound book with the gold Indian on the cover (the title of which escapes me). Perhaps the publisher of some of the other books or the genealogical society should send them information on purchasing those books, or might consider donating them copies of the book.
I have purchased and donated many books on the county I coordinate for USGW, simply because I thought they should have everything avaliable.
At any rate, I am pleased to be on the list. Please feel free to visit the site for Hunt County at http://www.vpltz.com/hcmain.htm
