In our Genealogy Room we have many references to help you with your searching, as well as a computer with a link to the Library version of ancestry and a variety of information and tools to use.  The room has a scanner to digitize pictures, documents , and slides.  There is a wealth of local information about families, churches, businesses that we have collected over the years.

The Library has a paid Ancestry account.  It can only be accessed within the Library and on Library computers.  Here is the link:
