(17-4) Library News

Joan Bullard

We are expanding our collection for German research by purchasing the series “MAP GUIDE TO GERMEN PARISH REGISTERS.” This series will help you identify the parish where your ancestor went to church based on where they lived. If the parish has been microfilmed by the LDS Library, it will list the microfilm number. These books contain much information to help the researcher. We have the following books so far in the library: Grandduchy of Hessen, Grandduchy of Baden, Grandduchies of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, and Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Province of Schleswig-Holstein-Kingdom of Prussia and Grandduchyof Oldenburg, Kingdom of Wurttemberg 2 vols.

New books to our Florida Collection are: ORANGE CO. MARRIAGES Vols. 1-3, EARLY SETTLERS OF ORANGE CO., ORLANDO CITY DIRECTORY 1915, ORANGE CO. GAZETTEER, and BUSINESS DIRECTORY 1887, and OAK HILL CEMETERY in Osceola Co.
