In addition to documents such as family files, local newspapers, and land records, we have an extensive reference library which can help you trace your family tree and put your research into context.

We also have a subscription to Ancestry Library which researchers can access within our facility. Staff can assist you with navigating this powerful online database on our public computer or on your own device through our free WiFi network.

If you are new to genealogical research, be sure to review our Research Guides which give you an overview of the most important genealogical records. Created to help the beginner genealogist, these guides identify key resources both within our collection and online that can help you with your research.
