Genealogy Research Room


Jane Clark Brown Resource Room

The Historical Society is in the process of developing a genealogy resource room in the back section of the room next to the museum.  The room has a variety of books, files, and documents on Union County history and genealogy.  The information is available on a limited basis during the hours of the museum.  Special arrangements to access the room during non-museum hours can be made (refer to the home page).  It is advisable to contact the museum prior to visiting the resource room.  The society does not currently offer any genealogy research services.  We can only assist you in person at the resource room.

 The resource room is named after Jane Clark Brown.  The late Mrs. Brown was a long-time board member of the society, Anna native, teacher, and local historian.  The room is dedicated to the memory of Jane and her devotion in the preservation of local history.

 The society is always interested in receiving documents and items from Union County including the communities of Alto Pass, Anna, Cobden, Dongola, and Jonesboro.  We are especially interested in family histories, photos, newspapers, Union County genealogy, and other related items.  Photocopied documents are acceptable and we can also arrange for loans in order for us to copy/scan the item.
