Saturday Sharing – Digital Copies

Have you every wished you could find that article you read in Family Tree Magazine, but can’t remember what issue it was in? Do you have stacks of old magazines that are taking up valuable space in your home? The Genealogical Library now has back issues of Family Tree Magazine in digital form thanks to a donation. These issues of magazines can be accessed from the first computer in the Library and they cover 2000-2013. They are searchable and printable. If you find the article you want, you can print it out for only ten cents a page.

Plus all the State Research Guides for all 50 states plus Washington DC and Puerto Rico are available in digital form. They were published as four-page inserts in the Family Tree Magazine, but they can be access directly via the State Research Guides Shortcut located on the first computer. If you are going to be doing research in a state that you are unfamiliar with or even familiar with, you will find many helpful tips and links to aid your genealogy research in those states. We also have these guides in printed form too!

There is even City Genealogy Guides for many major cities. These two were published as four-page inserts in the Family Tree Magazine and can be access directly via the City Genealogy Guides shortcut located on the first computer.

In addition to all of this, there is another short cut which will take you directly to Family Tree Magazine’s Web Guides. These are short four-page how-to-do guides to popular websites such as HeritageQuest or Ancestry.com. Now some might be a little out of date, but you still might find helpful tips or tricks that you didn’t know before.


Come into the library now and explore our new donations, printout an interesting article or helpful guide that might come in handy this summer as you are traveling for your genealogy research.
