Research your Family History at the Library!

By Jason Gavin, Special Collections Librarian

Now is a great time to get started with your family genealogy for free using Ancestry.com at the Williamson County Public Library. Most patrons don’t realize that you can access the Ancestry.com library edition while you are in the library at no cost! All you need your WCPL card. From any library computer, point your browser to www.ancestrylibrary.com. The Special Collections department is also teaching Introduction to Ancestry.com classes twice every month –register online from the first of the month, and don’t wait too long as space fills up quick! Need more genealogy help? Visit the Special Collections department – we have deed records, cemetery records, county histories, maps, passenger lists and much more to help you break through those problem “brick wall” ancestors. Visit our digital genealogy list. Most of the resources listed there can be accessed from your home computer with only your WCPL card.
