This is a fabulous website which includes genealogy books, county and state histories, and biographies.  If you have an illusive ancestor whose records are "missing" on traditional databases, there may be a book listing your family as pioneers in a county history.  This website also has Reclaim The Records and other media.  Instruction will include how to download and create your own family library.

** Patrons are required to log on with video and sound. 

** The Zoom invite will be sent the day before class.
