One of our most popular online resources has always been Ancestry Library Edition. But, until now, you could only access it from inside our library building. Through the end of April, Ancestry is available from the comfort and safety of your own home.
Ancestry offers the most comprehensive genealogical information available online. Its collection contains information from more than 9,000 databases, including 4 billion names, and 200 billion images from the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Europe, and Australia. And it available right now with your Eisenhower Library Card.
Don’t have a card? No problem. If you are a resident of Norridge or Harwood Heights age 13 or older, you can instantly get an online library card that grants access to Eisenhower’s collection of ebooks, audiobooks, and other digital materials… including Ancestry.
Our thanks to Ancestry and the team at SWAN for working to make this happen, allowing you to research your family history while staying home and staying safe.
