Genealogy Research Online
Come to the library to use Ancestry/Library Edition
, the free version of Ancestry.com, the world's largest online family history resource. It has federal and state censuses and records of births, marriages, deaths, immigration, military and more. Heritage Quest (outside
the library) has federal census records and local histories. Newspapers are great sources, too. We’ve got The New York Times (1851-2009) (outside
the library) and The Philadelphia Historical Archive
(1830-1922) in PDF format. See the newspapers as they appeared in print.
