New resources!

We're very happy to announce that we've recently added three new resources to our Genealogy collection! 


HeritageQuest Online provides a comprehensive collection of genealogical and local history resources. This database
makes it convenient to explore billions of American and international genealogical records dating back to the 1700s —
including unique primary sources, family and local histories, research guides, interactive census maps, and more. Combined
with an easy-to-use search experience, it’s easier than ever for users to discover their ancestors and learn about local people
and places from the past. Library Edition Library Edition provides online access to nearly 20,000 historical newspapers. It offers full-page images with searchable full text for millions of pages of newspapers dating from the early 1700s into the early 2000s. Library Edition contains full runs and portions of runs of known, regional, and state titles to small local newspapers in the United States and other countries.

Fold3 Library Edition

Only Fold3 Library Edition by Ancestry combines official military records with deep first-person content, including bios, photos, letters, and more. More than 500 million searchable records span hundreds of years.
