Wilson-Cobb History and Genealogy Library

The Wilson-Cobb History and Genealogy Research Library is a special collection, standalone library that was established in April 1999. It was organized to serve the needs of Roswell, New Mexico and surrounding communities in the geographical area.

Monetary support for the library comes through members, grants, charitable donations from individuals, and fund raisers.

We welcome donations of books, office supplies, and any other items that may be used in the operations of the library.

The Roswell Genealogical Society meets at the library at 1:30 PM the second Thursday of every month, except for June, July and August. The meetings are open to the public, and anyone with an interest in genealogy is invited to attend.
