Databases for Family Research

You are probably aware of the genealogical and historical newspaper databases available through our library.  If you are not familiar with them, go to our website( and click on Databases, and then Genealogy for a listing of what is available to you. Besides this fairly broad collection of genealogical and historical databases, we also subscribe to others that might be helpful to you in your family research. As an example, below is a link to a video demonstrating how an encyclopedic database was used in researching an archaic medical term.  Of course, it is always tempting to just “Google” to find some quick information, but if you are writing your family history, you might want to make sure to find material that you know is from a credible source worth citing in your footnotes or bibliography.
