Research at the WTC
Shannon Sturm, Head of the Ralph Chase West Texas Collection, invites Concho Valley genealogists to avail themselves of the many resources in the library from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. In addition to the extensive collection of genealogy books and documents, the WTC holds historic photographs from the area, newspaper archives, Fold3, and the library edition of Ancestry.com available to visitors at no charge.
There are three computers for accessing (free) Ancestry, plus one computer attached to a microfilm reader. There is no printer, so bring a USB drive for your copies.
