New history book for Columbia County

Columbia County Library is sponsoring a county history book for this area. The cover of the upcoming county history book will be a luxurious green leatherette. A gold embossed seal featuring the Columbia County courthouse will complete the cover. The book will feature histories by Mike Gee, local historian.

A brochure describing the book project and inviting all those with ties to Columbia County to submit family histories has been mailed soon. The brochure will include sample histories and tips for preparing a family historical sketch not to exceed 500 words. The family history and photo will be included in the book free of charge.

Businesses and churches may also include their history for a per page fee.

The deadline of October 30, 2022 has been set for submitting histories and photos.
