Your Family @ Your Fingertips
September 09, 2010
All patrons of Mid-Continent Public Library have access to the Midwest Genealogy Center in Independence, MO. From there, you can use a seemingly endless supply of resources to find your ancestry.
MCPL has access to Ancestry Library Edition at the branches, which is a useful tool for starting out on your genealogical quest. However, if you want to save a trip to the library, you can check out Heritage Quest, a genealogy resource which you can access from home. Though some of the sources overlap, such as census records and freedman’s bureau records, many are unique. Heritage Quest has access to thousands of family history books, memorials, and local history articles, which are not readily available.
When you are ready to begin (or continue) your family research, be sure to stop by the Midwest Genealogy Center, or visit our website for more genealogical resources.
