    I live in Red Oak Tx. I would very much like to access your genealogy section online. Could you tell me how this might be possible?

      Good Morning,

      The only thing you can access online is our newspapers. Just go to our Genealogy page under the Research tab located on our Home page and scroll down until you see Guntersville Newspapers. You can also browse our catalog for genealogy books (search bar in the upper right corner of our website) and if you know of a specific record that may be found in our Southern History Room you can fill out a Genealogy Record Request form, also located on our Genealogy page.
