Start your search with one of the most sought-after subscription databases - Ancestry Library Edition (there's no charge for library cardholders). Help and guidance are always available at any of our locations or over the phone; you can even schedule a personal 30-minute consultation with a librarian to get you started.
This resource is only available inside the library at any of our locations. Ancestry Library Edition is a great resource for people who want to learn more about their family history. You can search for your ancestors using Census records from the United States and Canada, genealogical database, and family histories with an international scope back to the 1300s. Ancestry is especially user-friendly, allowing relevant documents to be printed right in the library, or emailed back to the user's home computer. Staff members are always available to help make your search more successful.
