Genealogy & Local History
The Charleston Carnegie Public Library has a room devoted to the historical/genealogical collection. This collection concentrates on local history materials of Coles County and surrounding counties: Edgar, Clark, Cumberland, Shelby, Moultrie, and Douglas. The Genealogy Room is open the same hours as the Library but is staffed by volunteers. Please call 217.345.4913 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
