Ancestry Library Edition – Remote Access Available for a Limited Time


One of the most popular databases at the Rockport Public Library is Ancestry Library Edition. This genealogical database is used by many to look up census records from 1790-1940 , draft cards, ship passenger lists, and much more.

This database was only available for in-library use, but due to the unprecedented shut down of libraries across the state, Ancestry is offering remote access to Rockport Public Library cardholders for a limited time, from now through June 30.

Click here to access Ancestry Library Edition. To view a complete list of the library’s online resources please visit our page “Online Research & Entertainment”.

If you are a Rockport resident and do not yet have a card please feel free to register for a card online.
