The Paula Davis Genealogical Library at Tri-County Library on Market Street in Mabank, Texas, had added a number of new books to the collection. As with all our reference volumes, these may be used in the library but are not available for check-out. Members of the Root Seekers Genealogical Society volunteer on Tuesday mornings to assist any visitor or member who needs assistance.
This is a list of those that were cataloged and shelved this month:

Early Kentucky Householders 1787-1811

Books in the library are bought using funds from annual dues, seminars, and other fund raising events and also from the generosity of individual members and others who donate books to add to the collection. The library is named for one of the charter members of the Society whose collection was donated to the library by her husband upon Paula Davis’ death.
