Root Cellar member Carolee Jones offers kudos to the Howard County Missouri Genealogical Society:
I am a member of the Howard County Missouri Genealogical Society. Harold Kerr II is the president of the society. He has a quote with every email correspondence he sends. It says, "To be in ignorance of one's ancestry is to be a tree without a root, a river without a source." The society is headquartered in Fayette, Missouri and has a library in a room in the town's main library. The society has upon request sent me Wills, Bonds, Letters and Deeds for great-grandparents and a great-uncle. In their newsletter I have found a newspaper article announcing the breeding of one great-grandfather's stallion standing for stud on the farm of another great-grandfather.How wonderful it must have been for Carolee when she read about her ancestor in a local society newsletter. Even more special because Carolee is an avid horse owner, rider and trainer.
