The Library Edition is available for free on all library computers. You can also access this amazing resource (even when the library is closed) on your laptop, tablet or smartphone any time you access the free Wi-Fi signal available anywhere on library grounds.

With the Library Edition, you can look up genealogy records, historical documents and other important family papers and then print them out for documentation or future research. You can even create a personalized family tree.
