Ancestry is undoubtedly one of the most fun and compelling databases we have in our collection. Typically, it is limited to in-library use only, but due to the coronavirus you can now access it from home for a limited time.

How to access Ancestry

Use this link or the one on our Databases page and enter your library card number to start your genealogical quest.

Even for those not particularly interested in genealogy or family history, getting to play detective while filling in your family line is extremely gratifying. With Ancestry there is always something new to discover and a new mystery to investigate.

Hop on Ancestry to connect to your family history and piece together a narrative you can share, build on, use to give your family a proper origin story.
