Check out our genealogy databases!

Genealogists rejoice! We’re excited to announce that we recently added HeritageHub to our list of online resources. This database provides access to millions of newspaper obituaries dating back to 1704 and spanning all 50 states. HeritageHub joins HeritageQuest (a resource that provides access to U.S. and Canadian historical censuses, Freedman’s records, and U.S. Indian census rolls) as UCPL’s databases dedicated to genealogy. Access to HeritageHub and HeritageQuest is free with your UCPL card, and is available on the Genealogy Resources page of our website.

For more genealogical assistance, we’ve also added a link to FamilySearch, the world’s largest free online genealogical resource, with more than 2 billion historical records from around the world.
