Update on AncestryLibrary

Ancestry Library Edition
Things are a-changing in 2022

Ancestry.com just posted a new message on my DeKalb County Public Library account. In short it states that its free genealogy research resources are for use only in the library and not at home.

Here’s the new message:


Ancestry Library Edition is a new genealogy research tool that provides library patrons instant access to a wide range of resources for genealogical and historical research. Ancestry Library Edition includes records from the U. S. Census; military records; court, land and probate records; vital and church records; directories; petitions for naturalization; passenger lists and more!Ancestry Library Edition is not for home use. To access this database, please ask for more information at your local library.For libraries wishing to arrange a free trial, please call ProQuest Sales at 1‑800‑521‑0600, extension 3344.For initial account setup or account preferences, contact ProQuest Customer Service.For authentication issues connecting or logging in, contact ProQuest Technical Support.

My genealogy sense is that ancestry.com will again alter this policy as the health pandemic contribute to limited indoor visitations and closings of some facilities.

Stay tuned in 2022 to our blogs and social media on how to benefit from free genealogy offerings.

Happy 2022!

Author: Learning family histories

Our genealogy traces our family from western and central Africa and western Europe. Our ancestors entered the United States at the Virginia and Georgia Ports. First cousins Mark Owen and Ann Lineve Wead (it is protocol to use the maiden names of females in genealogy searches) are responsible for writing this blog. Although Ann has been involved in genealogy research while searching for certain ancestors since the age of 10, the cousins began deeper research of their families during the COVID-19 Pandemic Year of 2020. Devoting as much as 6 hours some evenings to the methodical training and research of genealogy, the cousins completed the year 2020 by earning genealogy certificates.
