This month take a look at HeritageQuest and AncestryLibraryEdition. Both will assist you in developing and adding to the genealogy of your family. On line images of census records are available as well as immigration and passenger lists, family histories, military records and newspapers and periodicals. Both are a rich source for genealogy information.

HeritageQuest is available from library computers and from your home computer. You will need your library card barcode information to log in from home.

AncestryLibraryEdition is only available from library computers. Remote access is not sold to libraries.

These online databases supplement our print collection in areas of special interest. These databases are updated frequently and contain reliable information...something to look for in these days of thousands of hits in Google searches.

If you'd like books to go with the online databases check the nonfiction 929 section.
