Collection Description[edit | edit source]

The Ellen Payne Odom Genealogy Library in the south wing of the Moultrie-Colquitt County Library emphasizes Scottish immigrants to America, but also has a good basic American genealogy collection.[5] Their collection is an archives for more than 130 Scottish clan organizations, houses many rare books including an original edition of Scottish Peerage, and the Emmett Lucas Collection about the southeastern United States, the Civil War and migration routes west. They have a good collection of newspapers. The Odom Genealogy Library is considered one of the three "crown jewels" of genealogy repositories in the Georgia public library system.[6]
