    2. Robert B. Noles
    3. PRESS RELEASE August 9, 2009     Elmer's Genealogy Library in Madison, Florida, established by Elmer C. Spear will be merging with the Huxford Genealogical Society Library in Homerville, Georgia in 2010.  The merged Library will be housed in Homerville, Georgia. This merger has already been approved by the Board of Directors of both libraries. The transfer of the contents of Elmer's Library, including over 30,000 books, nearly 4,000 rolls of microfilm, and over 10,000 sheets of mirofiche will start taking place as soon as the City of Homerville completes the renovation of the building that will house both libraries.   This merger will produce a genealogical library that's more than double the size of the existing Huxford Library.    The City of Homerville provides utilities as well as housing for the Huxford Genealogical Society Library and will continue to do so.   Since Elmer's Genealogy Library is a 501 (c) (3) corporation, the library building on Range Avenue in Madison will also be donated to the Huxford Genealogical Society. This decision to merge Elmer's Library with the Huxford Library was made to ensure the survival of Elmer's Genealogy Library into the future.  If you are a genealogist, you will really enjoy this new combination library.  After the merger, the new library will be the finest private genealogical library in the southeastern United States. There are two Bed and Breakfast establishments in Homerville and this small Georgia town, located between Waycross and Valdosta on US Hwy. 84, welcomes genealogists with open arms.  Genealogy draws a lot of out-of-town visitors to this small town which really appreciates it.  Homerville is easily reached from both I-10 and I-75.  See Map. Elmer's Genealogy Library members will be extended an invitation to transfer their membership to the new and larger library. The new library will be named the Folks Huxford and Elmer Spear Genealogical Library.  This new library will be managed by the Huxford Genealogical Society.
