Custom Tote Bags for Researchers by Hopkins County Genealogical Library

If you have entered into the exciting world of tracing your family tree, or genealogy, you already know what an absorbing endeavor it is. Persons who use the Hopkins County Genealogical Society Library realize that it is not only operated by knowledgeable docents who are happy to share their expertise, the library is a compact treasury of facts, photos and documents for genealogists. Researchers also know that humor is a helpful tool used by friends and family for understanding the amount of time and effort that genealogists put into their craft! Thus, one library docent has put her crafting skills to use, creating ‘tote bags’ with whimsical sayings that genealogists can appreciate. The bags are only $15 each, and each one is different. All proceeds will be donated back to the genealogical library as a fundraising effort. During COVID-19, the research library experienced a drop in needed revenue due to weeks of closure during Spring and early Summer. So now that library hours have been relaxed once again, you can come into the research facility, look at the tote bags and select yours for purchase, or you can order online at [email protected]. Additionally, the new, locally authored volume called “The Progressive City; Sulphur Springs Downtown 1914” is for sale there as well as are many other works produced by members of the Hopkins County Genealogical Society.
