Holyoke Public Library patrons can now search family history in two new genealogical databases, Ancestry Library Edition and Heritage Quest Online. Access to these databases is made possible by a generous donation from the Friends of the Holyoke Public Library.
Please note that you must be in the Library to access Ancestry Library Edition.
Ancestry Library Edition provides access to millions of unique, full-text primary sources and enhanced images, including: U.S., U.K. and Canadian Census records; Canadian genealogical records; U.S. military records; and immigration, passport, and naturalization records.
HeritageQuest Online is a broad database of genealogical information that includes tens of thousands of family and local history books, as well as federal census data. Itís a great resource for tracing North American lines of descent.
HeritageQuestOnline can be accessed remotely as well as in the Library. When prompted, type in your Holyoke Public Library card number.
