Of course, the Libraries have the Ancestry.com Library Edition in their branches for use free to patrons. But these new resources are online and available 24/7. The two new additions include the Gale Genealogy Connect with hundreds of digitized books, many of which I have used for research in the past, and the ProQuest Obituaries, in addition to Heritage Quest. Did I mention that I can download some of the books to my computer?
Oh well, do I sound enthusiastic about this? Here is how the Gale Genealogy Connect is described:
Gale Genealogy Connect features a wide range of comprehensive references and is powered by authoritative information from Genealogical.com — the parent company of Genealogical Publishing and Clearfield Company, leading publishers of works on genealogy and family history.
These unique references — available for the first time online in fully searchable format. Users can confidently connect the dots with authoritative contextual information, where the full story lives.You might want to check your own city and county libraries to see if they have a similar program.
