We have so many new books from the Grace Turner Collections that I am not even listing them all because my fingers are too tired.  She must have had quite the elusive ancestor ancestor in Lincoln County, NC because we have about every book ever written on the place.  This is nice for me because I am from Gaston County and it was a part of Lincoln County until 1847.

New Books

IMG_20130514_141258

Many of the titles are resources from Western North Carolina,  a region that was poorly represented in our collection.

We were just donated enough books to fill my budget for 15 years.  Well maybe I’m exaggerating a little…14 years.  Debra Turner Tamberelli donated the books in memory of her mother, Grace Williamson Turner.  Mrs.Turner won the North Carolina Society of Historians, Historian of the Year award in 1990 and was a tireless researcher.  She also had a kingly collection of genealogical and and history monographs.  I put as many books into my Camry as could fit and now they are here at the Wilson County Public Library.  We are quite honored to be receiving these books and they will be put to good use by many researchers.

I told you that there were a lot of books.
