Have you ever wanted to know more about your family tree? If so, the library might be able to help you with a plethora of genealogy research tools, including HeritageQuest. You can find HeritageQuest by clicking on the Stop Searching Start Finding link on our website and selecting the History and Genealogy tab at the top of the page, or by clicking here.

Once on the site you can search for information about your relatives by looking through a variety of records, including US and Canadian censuses, Revolutionary War Era pensions, and the Freedman’s Bank. Information such as your relative’s full name, nationality, place and time of birth can be entered to narrow down your search. With some hunting around, you can discover what lies at the roots of your family tree!
