Ancestry Library, one of the newest additions to the library’s database, provides access to records and resources critical to genealogical research. The database has many features to aid the novice searcher, including research aids for getting started with a search through its Learning Center, and many charts and forms to choose from for organizing information. Message boards allow fellow searchers to communicate and report any progress.
Ancestry Library also provides access to census, vital (birth, marriage and death), military and immigration records. Additional records available for searches include tax, criminal, land & will, along with city, school and church directories, and newspapers, maps, and photos.
