Your Local Library?

Even if your local library does not have a genealogical collection relevant to your actual research, do they offer services that could assist you in your search? It may be possible to get materials through interlibrary loan or your library may have access to fee-based databases that could be helpful to your search.

  1. A few years ago, I wrote to a foreign archive and asked if they had any magazine or books etc about a town my ancestors were from. Yes, they did, but they were sorry that they cold no make copies or interloan the book. But I tried my local library in New York State, and it turned out that the big New York City public library did have them. And for a pittance I was able to get copies. Better yet, my family was featured in those articles!
