Family Tree graphicDid you know we have a whole group of genealogy databases and other unique resources to aid in your quest to fill in all the branches of your family tree? The best part is they are all free and easy to use!

Some databases can be accessed from your home computer, but a few like Ancestry.com must be accessed through your local branch or Central library.

And while you are at Central Library, stop by our History and Genealogy Department for a deep dive into the past. It's amazing what you can dig up.
