Those of us that do genealogy hate to think of the day we are gone and our family then says "Who wants Grandpa's Papers?". Just the horror that our lives genealogy work might go into the trash will make you shiver with a mind numbing cold chill up your spine. You might of thought in the past that the answer would be to send your genealogy papers to the Family History Library in Salt Lake or donate them to the BYU Library. Well those places are becoming full and hense pickier in what they will accept. Your collection of papers might get microfilmed if your lucky but the originals will get returned to your family. The question is then where do you put it? Thanks to Arlene Eakle and Genealogy Library Center, Inc there is a place to donate your genealogy records and make them available to the public.

Here's the scoop:

Genealogy Library Center, Inc.

A non-profit genealogical library established by Arlene H. Eakle to help you preserve your personal manuscript genealogy files and supporting books, maps, and other genealogical materials and to make these precious and valuable data available to genealogists who share common genealogy ancestry.

As we get older, our stuff has a kind of primary importance.  Our children, even if they have the interest, usually lack the space to raise a family and preserve genealogy files too. The Genealogical Library Center, Inc. have bought a large building on Main Street in Tremonton Utah to store, protect, preserve, and make available to the public various genealogical research collection that need a permanent home. They currently have 6 ½ tons of British Isles professional family and locality files (Sherwood Collection); 3-million entry slip index to British Court documents; 50,000 entry card index to German Church Books; 12 file drawers of American professional research files including original photographs (Hollingsworth Collection); 5 Virginia databases--rent rolls, 53 family notebooks, marriage records, land ownership maps, and "minutemen" for Culpeper County; Chamberlain Families of America Collection - family notebooks, correspondence files, US census entries and spreadsheets, FGR and Pedigree charts; etc.  All collections, no matter how big or small are important to preserve.

If you have a research collection that needs a permanent home contact:  Arlene H. Eakle, Genealogy Library Center, Inc., 56 West Main Street, Suite B, Tremonton UT 84337.  Mailing address:  P.O. Box 40, Garland, UT 84312;  Phone: 800-377-6058;  email: researchmyfamilytree@yahoo.com.

Update from Arlene Eakle:
The library will probably be open later this year. If not ready for the general public, it will be ready by appointment. You would need to call 1-800-377-6058 in advance. There will be a user fee to access the materials. She will be giving a list of materials in the collection to be posted on Renee's website http://www.harrisena.com.
