If you have an interest in genealogy, the library is one of your first stops. Visit the Genealogy page on the website. There are two online databases available free through the library: Heritage Quest and Ancestry. Ancestry is only available at the library, but Heritage Quest is accessible from any computer anywhere with your library card and pin number. (If you don't know your pin number, go to the checkout desk.)
The Minter VanOrman Room at the Carnegie Branch houses the library's Genealogy and Jackson Local History collections. The materials in these collections are available to the public during normal Carnegie Branch hours.
All materials in the Minter VanOrman Room are restricted to library use only. Staff members and volunteers are happy to assist the public as time permits.
