Ancestry Library - Census, military & immigration records for genealogy research
Ancestry Library is the only database offered by the library that must be used while in the library using library computers or by using library wifi on your device. HeritageQuest, another genealogy database offered by BHPL, can be accessed from home by library card holders by going to our ‘Articles and Databases’ webpage
For beginning genealogists, Ancestry Library offers ‘Learning Center’ and ‘Beyond the Basics’ sections in the database that will teach the user how to navigate the resources. Reference librarians can help patrons find the database and point out the basics to get you started finding your ancestors and personal history.
