"Recent Microfilm Purchase By TSGS"

From Brenda Joyce Jerome, CG (TSGS Acquisition Chair):

The Tri-State Genealogical Society recently acquired a sizeable microfilm collection from the personal library of a long-time professional genealogist. Included in this purchase are the following with number of rolls in parenthesis:

Kentucky records for Boyle, Clark (8), Fleming (2), Garrard (12), Green (5), Harrison (3), Henry (4), Jessamine (7), Knox (1), Madison (23), Simpson (1), Union (41), Whitley (7) counties.

Virginia records for Louisa (23), Loudon (36), Orange (22), Prince William (9), and Stafford (13) counties.

Illinois records for St. Clair County (2).

North Carolina records for Guilford County (2 vols. 7-13).

The most exciting part of this purchase is a portion of the Draper Manuscripts. They include the following:

Kentucky Papers, Series CC, volumes 1-36 on 8 rolls

George Rogers Clark Papers, 64 volumes on 17 rolls

George Rogers Clark Misc. Papers, 5 volumes on 1 roll

Virginia Papers, Series ZZ, 16 volumes on 2 rolls

The above collection will be catalogued and placed in Special Collections at Willard Library. The addition of this microfilm will enhance the already fine collection at Willard Library.
