Learn how to use BHPL’s Ancestry database in your genealogy research. Search the U.S. and U. K. Census, family genealogies, military records, maps, charts, birth, marriage and death records, the Social Security Death Index and much more in this huge online repository of information. Ancestry is available for free from Berkeley Heights Public Library’s internet terminals.
The Ancestry Library Edition collection has approximately 4,000 databases including key collections such as U.S. Federal Census images and indexes from 1790 to 1930; the Map Center containing more than 1,000 historical maps; American Genealogical Biographical Index (over 200 volumes); Daughters of the American Revolution Lineage (over 150 volumes); The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England, 1620-1630; Social Security Death Index (updated monthly); WWI Draft Registration Cards; Federal Slave Narratives; and a strong Civil War collection. In the coming year, still more indexes and original images will be added to the new Immigration collection.”
