Library group arranges family tree research tool for local use
October 5, 2017
The local Friends of the Library have acquired a new resource for research at Irene Ingle Public Library.
The web-based reference tool, ProQuest’s Ancestry Library Edition, helps users trace family trees more easily. The program maintains millions of family records dating as far back as the 15th century.
In a news release late last week, the library explained the new resource responds to local interest in family history.
“More and more of our patrons want to explore their past, and these resources make it easy and convenient,” explained Wrangell library director Margaret Villarma.
