Interlibrary Loan

ILL is so cool. I should know, I’m a librarian :-)

Today, our branch library received the book that I’d requested through Interlibrary Loan – The History and Genealogy of Jones County, North Carolina. I’d ordered this book as the Koonce family I’m researching is of Jones County. This book is so cool! The way the family information is presented is in the same format as the Heritage books series. Then, following the family profiles, Ms. Harriett has created an index of people and clarifies the family relationships – we’re talking thousands of people. In the Introduction of the book, she mentions that she gathered all this data in the course of doing her own personal research.

I am about to really look more closely at it, but I know I’ll be making many photocopies this weekend from it – there is just so much information in it. If not for immediate use now, for future reference later.
