Genealogy research is such an important study. People want to know where they come from and where their roots are, and we try to do our best to help people do that. Our computer lab in the Fort Branch Carnegie Building is open the same hours as the Fort Branch library. Come in and we can help you get started! In the upper level of the Fort Branch Carnegie Building, we have the Fort Branch Paper on microfilm that can be utilized during your research. We also have several local Family Trees saved to flash-drives. Maybe some of the research has already been done for you! To the left there are links to other sites that will help you in your search.
