“Ancestry” taps rich trove of genealogical and historical resources

 

 

Ancestry — Library Edition is now available at Falvey Memorial Library. Access to Ancestry is available via the library Databases A-Z list as well as from the History and Biographies research guide pages.

Ancestry encompasses a vast collection of genealogical data which trace the history of millions of individuals, going back as far as 1300 in some cases. The collection consists of census data, vital records, directories, photos and more. Faculty members in the History Department are already planning student research projects with  Ancestry data sets for the coming semesters.

For more information, see Jutta Seibert’s blog on this new resource.
