As winter winds down, the month of March feels like a good time to visit your local library for some productive genealogy research. So we’re focused on Ancestry Library, the largest online family history resource available. Ancestry Library edition provides access to family history documents that record the lineage of individuals from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, and more. Search census, immigration, birth, marriage, and death records and other primary sources. Remember, Wyoming library users must use this resource in their local library, but it’s worth the trip!
The resources and links below will help Wyoming librarians promote and offer services related to all things genealogy for their patrons. Remember, all these easy-to-use items are from brought to you by GoWYLD.net and the Wyoming State Library! It’s all good stuff.
