Just before Christmas, we had a “repeat customer.” A lady from Virginia visited us a few years ago and found her Troup County family that she needed to complete her D. A. R. papers. We also sent her to several sites related to them: cemeteries, churches, schools, and houses. Over the past few years, we have corresponded with her on additional family lines. For her 70th birthday this year, she told her husband that all she wanted was to come back to the Troup County Archives. She celebrated her actual birthday researching in our library. When we found out that she had requested this as her present to mark this milestone birthday, we went out and got her a miniature birthday cake and the staff surprised her with it and sang “Happy Birthday” to her.
