What is Ancestry Library Edition?
Ancestry Library Edition is a database of genealogical resources for finding vital records, census records, immigration records (birth/death registrations), land and tax records, wills, selected military records, voting lists, etc.. The resource is especially for U.S. and Canadian records, and also includes some European, Australian and New Zealand records.
Ancestry LE contains over 30,000 record collections which span much of the globe and together hold over 11 billion records, some going back to the 1500s. Ancestry Library Edition contains more records than the free site but slightly less than the full premium site. Please note, the information you will be able to find will vary depending on where and when your ancestors lived. In addition, not all records will be available for each of your ancestors being researched. New content added weekly!
Ancestry LE is only available for in-branch use. Access Ancestry LE by clicking on the banner above when in any TBPL branch.
