The following is from a posting that appeared in GSGC Tips and Treasures earlier this year:
The Folks Huxford and Elmer Spear Genealogical Library will result from the merger of Elmer's Genealogy Library previously located in Madison, Florida with the Huxford Genealogical Library located in Homerville, Georgia. The merger will be completed sometime in 2010 and the combined library will be housed in Homerville (a small town located between Waycross and Valdosta, Georgia on U.S. Highway 84).When the merger is completed, the combined library may be the largest and finest private genealogical library in the southeastern United States. The library will be managed by The Huxford Genealogical Society.
The following announcement has been received from Elmer Spear regarding the opening of the merged library:
February l3, 2011 will be the Grand Opening of the new Huxford-Spear Genealogy Library at the Municipal Complex in Homerville, GA. Elmer Spear will speak about the new additions (28,000+ books and other materials) to the library.Refreshments will be served and door prizes will be awarded. And the best treat is you get to see and research in the new library. R.S.V.P. to Elmer Spear firstname.lastname@example.org.
