Great news for those who’ve always been curious about their family history, we’re pleased to share that access to Ancestry.com has been temporarily expanded to library cardholders working remotely, courtesy of ProQuest and its partner Ancestry. Please take some time to check it out!  You never know what you’ll discover. Go to our Databases/Resources and click on Ancestry Library Under Local History & Genealogy.

    The above link doesn’t work and the link posted on Facebook requires a username and password. Nothing mentioned about library card number. My ancestry login information doesn’t work. Can you please tell me how to access ancestry library edition?

      Hi Melissa. Go the the E-Resources pulldown menu at the top of the page. Then, go to E-Resources/Databases. Scroll down from there to Local History & Genealogy, and you will see Ancestry Library listed there, giving you the access you are looking for. Works great. Happy researching!
