Description

The Glenna Garner Collection is arranged into two series: Series I contains research compiled by family groups arranged alphabetically by surname; Series II contains records arranged alphabetically by document type. Series I focuses on Glenna Garner’s own genealogical research. The research is focused on primarily the following surnames: Akers, Garnand, Kefauver, Marken, Murray, Robertson, and Tilley. Garner often cites the sources for the information she gathered while researching her family history. Series II consists of records compiled by Garner, largely of cemetery surveys, but also deaths recorded in area funeral homes, and vital records attained from courthouses. In addition, there is an index of over four thousand obituaries from the Roanoke Times and The Roanoke World-News. The index was created from clippings Garner had collected over time with dates ranging from 1938 through 2010. While the original clippings were not retained, the obituaries can be retrieved from microfilm in the Virginia Room. Items in folders are maintained in the order in which they were compiled by Garner.
