AncestryPlus Database

AncestryPlus is a great place to start or continue your search for your family history via an extensive collection of public documents. It is simple to use and you do not need a lot of information to start. Some of the searchable material includes: Census Records from 1940 back to 1790, newspapers and obituaries, DAR lineage books and military records. Many images of actual records can be printed and/or sent to your email. 

Click on the box below, login (use your library login) and begin your search. It will ask you to provide as much information as you have. You can also click on one of the “Quick Links” to directly search resources such as city directories and immigration and travel.

This database is also available, with many other genealogical links, on our website under “Services”, in our “Local History” section.
