Start or build on your genealogy research from home!


Access to Ancestry Library Edition has been temporarily expanded to library cardholders working remotely, courtesy of ProQuest and its partner Ancestry.  Remote access will be available until  December 31st 2020 and will be re-evaluated monthly as needed. 

This means that all Rockport cardholders can access the following genealogy databases from home! It is a great time to take advantage of this resource to start or build on your genealogy research.

If you have questions about using these databases or doing genealogical research  please contact the library. We would love to help you!
