Ancestry Library Edition Continues Home Access

June 2, 2020

Have you enjoyed having the privilege of using Ancestry Library Edition at home during March, April, and May? Well, we have good news for you—the folks at Ancestry have extended the remote access privilege through December 2021!

You can access Ancestry Library Edition just like before: go to the MCPL genealogy databases webpage, click on Ancestry Library Edition, where you will be prompted for your MCPL Access Pass (Library card) number, and then you’re in!

Are you new to Ancestry or want some pointers about using it? There are tutorials from Ancestry that you can use to learn how to expand the power in your searching. Click More Info on the Ancestry card on the genealogy database page, and you will see a link to the Tutorials there. Also, the Midwest Genealogy Center has a 10-minute online class about Ancestry on the Online Learning page.

If you make some awesome discoveries about your ancestors during this additional month of searching, let us know! We’d love to share in your excitement.

Happy Researching!

It was wonderful to have this resource available during the library's closure.
It helped me pass many, many hours.
