We are excited to offer Ancestry Library Edition in our building!
This service is an awesome way to find old records for your family, from vital records and census data, to more interesting ephemera like draft cards and high school yearbook photos. Take a look around and see what you can find!
Ancestry Library is totally different from the personal edition of Ancestry, so it might be a little confusing. Don’t worry – during the summer, Katherine will be posting a lot of tutorials and hosting Q&A sessions to help people get into the service.
Temporary Remote Access
Until September 2021, Ancestry has given us a way to give our patrons access from home.

You won’t be able to save that link to your bookmarks, it has a referral code in it. Every time you use Ancestry from home, you’ll have to go from our remote access page.
