Search your family tree

Interest in genealogy has grown considerably in recent years, spurring some to call genealogy “the fastest growing hobby in North America.” You can now search through billions of records in census data, vital records, directories, photos, and more through Ancestry Library Edition. This resource is now available as a one-year pilot project through a federal IMLS LSTA grant awarded to the State Library of Ohio. Unlike most of the library’s databases, it is available from on campus only (no remote access). Though of particular interest to genealogists and researchers, Ancestry Library Edition can also be a valuable resource for course projects through its rich trove of primary source documents.
