Genealogy & Family History

Comprehensive in Georgia family and county histories, the H. Ross Arnold Jr. library at the Kenan Research Center contains 4,000 volumes regarding genealogy and family history of the American Southeast. The library also contains substantial holdings pertaining to North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama genealogy.

Resources for the genealogical library are made possible by funds from the Patterson-Barclay Memorial Foundation in memory of Fred W. and Lee Barclay Patterson, a bequest by Elizabeth Shepherd Green for the Blair Society for Genealogical Research and a gift in memory of Barbara Hume Barfield.

The Kenan Research Center would like to acknowledge a very generous gift from the William Strother Society; a family association dedicated to perpetuating the memories of its ancestors and furthering fellowship among the descendants of William Strother. The Strother gift funded the purchase of four new microfilm scanners for patron use in the Goldstein Reading Room.
