Finding Guides are tools that allow researchers to get an in-depth look at a collection before actually seeing the collection. Not all collections have finding guides, and not all finding guides are available on the website. Finding guides are created as collections are processed, with special attention given to the most used and requested collections. Here are our online finding guides available so far.
This collection consists of photographs and other records related to the life of Diboll native Mildred Griffith Kitchens. Born in 1920 to John C.

She married Frank Kitchens in 1942. The photographs and records in this collection showcase her life, including the celebration of her 100th birthday in July 2020.
