Pam Metts, Director of the library received the book on behalf of the library. The bound volume contains the quarterly newsletters of the Thomas-Bridges Association written by the late Edison H. Thomas, one of the charter founders of the Thomas-Bridges Association and the original creator and editor of the newsletter.
The newsletters reflect the ongoing history of the Thomas and Bridges families, two of the prominent pioneer families which settled in Trigg County in the early 1800s, and documents the births, deaths, weddings and other significant happenings of the two families.
It contains numerous historical articles on the European origins of the families from their migration from North Carolina through their settlement in Trigg County. The volume is the only bound work of these newsletters and will be available in the genealogy section of the library for those wishing to do research.
