LAUREL [Delaware] — Searching for cemetery records, census information, old deeds or probate abstracts? Your quest ends with the Laurel Public Library’s little-known but highly regarded Delaware Collection.
Sixty years strong with 2,376 print and non-print items, the collection is housed on the second floor of the library at 101 E. Fourth St. and represents the largest historical and genealogical compilation available in western Sussex County public libraries.
“We’re trying to reach people who don’t know about our collection,” says Norma Jean Fowler, the library’s Adult Services Librarian. “These resources are intended for researching local Delmarva history, culture and genealogy.”
