The Library has long had a subscription to Ancestry.com, but it could only be used at the Library. In response to the COVID-19 health crises, and the huge numbers of us at home, Ancestry decided to make its vast database available at home, providing you have a White Plains library card. Eager to lose four or more hours? Start searching your family history through Ancestry's incredible network of genealogical and historical records and related genetic genealogy websites.
With over 1.2 billion records in over 3,000 databases, Ancestry Library Edition is the most comprehensive online source of information for conducting genealogical and local history research.
Access to this resource has been temporarily expanded to White Plains Public Library cardholders working remotely, courtesy of ProQuest and its partner Ancestry.
