Our Society is pleased to offer our library holdings list online. This list shows all books and publications held in our library which can be viewed by the public during our regular library hours (the location of the library and hours are listed below). We are happy to do a surname lookup in one or two of the holdings for free. Please email your request, making sure to include the surname and publication title and any other information you think would be helpful (we will do the lookup as soon as we are able to). If you want a surname lookup in several holdings, it would be best to make a research request since we have a limited number of volunteers who can do lookups. Happy hunting!
Book and CD sales
Whitman County Families Vols. II & III are excellent resources for researching names of anyone who has any kind of family tie in Whitman County. For only $22 you get over 90,000 names of Whitman County people and their relatives living all over the U.S. Each name references a card number. The card usually contains an article from an area newspaper. Most are obituaries, but some are family reunions, weddings, cemetery records, etc. Women’s names are indexed by their married name (if applicable) as well as their maiden name, if it can be discerned. Most obituaries list parents, which allows you to go back one generation further, as well as descendants. If you find a name in the index which pertains to your family, you can order a copy of that card for only $1. What a bargain! Order now and get two volumes for the price of one, plus free shipping.
