Writer supports funding for Tompkins Library
posted March 31, 2009
Dear Edgefield County Council:
I am in huge support of continuing the funding for the Tompkins Library
in Edgefield. I have been a genealogical researcher and member of OEDGS
for several years now, and can guarantee anyone that there is no other
place on this planet like the Tompkins Library for information. They
offer a huge collection of books and sources for research as well as
friendly helpful service. Their newsletter, "The Quill," is an
excellent publication full of information that is valuable to any
genealogy or history researcher as well as listing a large selection of
books for sale.
I was born in the States, and my family came from Edgefield. I now live
in Canada and do not have any sources for my genealogy research, and
would be lost without the services of the Tompkins Library.
Three years ago, I visited Edgefield and stayed at the Edgefield Inn,
and dined on some good Southern cuisine at the Ten Governor's Cafe. I
also spent time at the Courthouse Archives which also has a wonderful
collection of valuable information for researchers. I loved my visit to
Edgefield, and plan to return in the near future. Other relatives of
mine that are also researchers and live in the States make regular
trips to Edgefield and the Tompkins Library, and consider it their
number one destination when traveling to South Carolina.
Please, please, do not end this wonderful link to our history.
Edgefield was the melting pot in the history of the Southern United
States. The Tompkins Library and the people that work there are
dedicated to preserving the history of Edgefield and South Carolina,
and offer a valuable service to everyone. Edgefield and the rest of the
world would not be the same without it.
