Ancestry Library Database--New Research Spotlight
A new collaboration brings a new resource to those interested in history, immigration, family records, and more. Funded from a federal Institute of Museum and Library Services LSTA grant awarded to the State Library of Ohio, this one year pilot brings the new Ancestry database & others to Ohio researchers via the Libraries Connect Ohio project. KSL features it as a Research Spotlight.
Ancestry Library Edition includes digitized images of
• U.S. Federal Census (1790-1930)
• Passenger and Immigration Lists Index
• Military Records
• Vital Records back to the 1800s
• Obituary notices
• US, UK & Canadian records
Enter a name and city & retrieve information that otherwise might have taken you weeks, months, and travel to collect. Reader & printer-friendly tools and other features help you navigate and print easily.
Enjoy this Kelvin Smith Library Research Spotlight.
