(19-2) Committee Reports

LARGE COLLECTION DONATED TO LIBRARY

Earlier this year the Central Brevard Library received a large donation of books and periodicals from Barbara Kurtz of Satellite Beach. These materials belonged to Barbara’s late husband, Maurice Kurtz who was a professor at FIT and an avid genealogist who specialized in Pennsylvania research with an emphasis on German families. The book portion of this donation consisted of 56 books on Pennsylvania, 21 on Kentucky, 25 books on New England states, 12 on Virginia and much more. There were also a large number of family histories on mostly Pennsylvania German families. Library volunteer Joan Bullard has been busy cataloging these items and most of them are now available to view in the genealogy department. While most of the donation consisted of materials the library does not currently own there were some duplicates. These books have been offered to the Titusville and Melbourne libraries to add to their genealogy collections. Michael has also compiled a listing of the books donated by state and title that is available at the library.
