I would like to thank you for supporting the Lawrence County Archives in Moulton. My family roots are in Lawrence County, but I am a Morgan County native.

I have been to the Archives in Moulton several times, researching my family roots and other extended families.

I was greeted with a surprise on Valentine’s Day. When I entered the Archives, I thought it had moved and that I was in the wrong place. It looked empty. No! The archivist had rearranged the displays and had created a “modern open appearance.” Wow! She took me and my husband on a tour of the “new” archives and told us what she wanted to do with old court records and find a place to display Lawrence County historical events of the past. My husband picked up a map of Lawrence County and read that your commissioner motto was, “With pride in our past, we are working together to build a solid future.” 

I hope you take an opportunity to visit your local archive, which tells you and me about Lawrence County in the past and building a solid future. It is so exciting to see Lawrence County taking an initiative to preserve its heritage.

Maybe I will see you there.

Sincerely,

Geraldine Locke
