Rockville Library to dedicate genealogy collection March 8

The genealogy collection at the Rockville Public Library will be named for Alberta T. Butler in a celebration at 1 p.m. on March 8. Butler was a longtime board member of the library, member of the Parke County Historical Society and member of the Wabash Valley Genealogical Society. She died July 24, 2013.

The collection is popular with researchers looking for their Parke County roots and access to area history. Hundreds of volumes, newspapers on microfilm, maps, photographs, family histories, birth/death records and cemetery abstracts are in the collection.

These records enable the library to provide assistance and source material, some of which can only be found in the Rockville Public Library’s collections.  

Library staff and board members work to ensure that certain old and irreplaceable records of local and regional history are preserved for the future and made available for those with questions. Many requests for this information are received by the library daily, and the Alberta T. Butler Local History and Genealogy Room will help meet the needs of the public.
