Wallace State Community College Library

In the small town of Hanceville in northern Alabama is a magnificent 6 storey college library. The whole of the 5th & 6th floors are given over to the Family and Regional History Collection. It includes an extensive and growing research collection. The Wallace State College Library was the first non-Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints library allowed to borrow directly from the holdings of the Genealogical Society of Utah, including some three million records and books from around the world. The library provides equipment and assistance for the copying of old family photos. Local records of interest are also microfilmed by the college.
Classes in a wide range of genealogical subjects are offered, including: Introductory Genealogy, Advanced Genealogy, Writing a Family History, Introductory Southern Genealogy, Civil War Research and Georgia Research. Students may audit the courses or receive three hours credit per course as a social or behavioral science. During the summer semester, week long symposium courses are offered. Alabama residents aged 60 or older pay no tuition.
