Find These Invaluable Library Genealogy Resources At Your Library

Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah once wrote, "By searching for our roots, we come closer together as a human family." As a family history enthusiast, I’ve been working on my own family tree for nearly 20 years, and the journey has been thrilling, exasperating, and incredibly rewarding all at once.

Along the way, I have found various library genealogy resources to be invaluable.

Did you know that the Library offers online access to HeritageQuest and historic newspapers? If you come into the Library, you can also use our online Ancestry.com subscription to trace your family tree and perhaps uncover a family secret or two.

Using those free sites, I was able to trace 375 ancestors and even discovered that my 6th great grandfather was a drummer in the Revolutionary War!

Visit our website to link to HeritageQuest or stop by and tap into Ancestry.com to get started on your own family tree. See where it leads you…
