Uncover Your Family Story

You might be looking for some interesting projects you can do from home right now, and at RPL we want to make that easier for you. Have you ever thought about getting started researching your family tree? Have you already started but are looking for resources to help take your research to the next level?

Ancestry Library Edition is one of the leading resources for genealogy enthusiasts that for a limited time you can access from home using your library card number and PIN. We expect home access to Ancestry Library Edition to continue to the end of May. Normally, access is in-library use only.

This is an exciting opportunity to dig in to those census, immigration and church records, and uncover the missing pieces of your family’s story. Who will you find?

Don’t forget to check out RPL’s other genealogy resource: Heritage Quest.

About Author

Trudi from Non-Fiction Collections

Natural habitat: Bingeing Netflix with my cat. I love scary movies and have been reading Stephen King since I was 11. Getting to see Hamilton in New York City was the thrill of a lifetime. My subject area for the library is everything nonfiction, including my favorites: memoirs, cookbooks, true crime, self-help, history and documentaries.
