The Green County Public Library has an extensive collection of genealogy material. Some of the collection was compiled and donated by individuals doing their own family research and some were published works purchased by the library. Other materials were family documents, photos, letters, etc. passed down through the years and many are public record. Everyone is invited to visit the library and search the collection.
