TNRD Library launches Ancestry Library Database

The Thompson-Nicola Regional Library has a new resource that uses technology to make tracing family trees easier.

Since March 4, library patrons have access to Ancestry® Library Edition, a webbased reference tool which will allow patrons to start exploring their roots by searching over 3,000 databases and billions of documents.

“We’re very pleased to be adding Ancestry Library to our suite of online resources and databases,” says Jenny Abramzik, Special Projects and E-Library Coordinator for the TNRL.

“This database is the world’s most popular online genealogy resource and it will aid many of our patrons in discovering their personal family history.”

Ancestry Library collections include census and military records, baptism, marriage and death records, and much more. Ancestry Library is only available for use at TNRL branches.
