The Ellen Payne Odom Genealogy Library Family Tree
The Family Tree - June/July 2003
Gift of Books

You are incredibly generous with your gifts of books and materials!
The Odom Library collection continues to grow, thanks to your kindness! Our collection at The Odom Library continues to grow...and we have an almost nonexistent book budget. How does it grow without a budget? That's the very easy our collection grows because of you...just like this little paper exists because of you! Before we talk about our gift books this time, I'd like to address a very serious subject...

Recently, a beloved cousin passed away. I wondered what had happened to her extensive and lifelong genealogy I knew she wanted it to come to The Odom Library.
It has NOT come to us. I was told that one of the "relatives" at the funeral just went into her office and put all of her files and books and materials into the trunk of her car and hauled it away. Nothing will happen as the family does not want to make a "fuss" over it...but it's not what my cousin wanted.
Folks, please protect your work. Visit your attorney and add a codicil to your will stating what you wish to happen to your research when you are no longer here. Without the legal protection, someone could haul off your lifetime work too. It really doesn't do much good to just tell folks what you need to have legal "backup" for your work so that it will be taken care of in the manner you wish.

Back to gift books....
We are so fortunate here at The Odom Library that lovely genealogists and historians from just about everywhere send us books and materials.
