Bad News! The Best Genealogy Library in Georgia to Shut Down! #genealogylibrary #georgiapioneerscom

Washington Memorial Library in Macon

Everyone who has enjoyed the thousands of microfilm records and books at the Washington Memorial Library are going to be disappointed as the Middle Georgia Regional Library is cuting its library funding effective July 2nd.  This cut includes the branches of .Riverside, Shurling, and Lanford Branches which are closing indefinitely. 

Washington Memorial Library will remain open until all reserves are depleted.  I visited this facility during the winter of 2017 and discovered that the one and only microfilm copier was not operating.  There are, however, a number of microfilm viewing machines available.  Meanwhile, images of wills, estates, marriages, obits, cemetery records, etc. are available to members of Georgia Pioneers
