Ancestry Library Edition Free at Home with Your Library Card

Ancestry is now available for free with your library card during the pandemic. Usually, this service is free only within the library. However, it can now be accessed along with HeritageQuest at home. Why not try it? Genealogy can become an obsessive hobby that will help pass the time. Fold3 and the Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps do not require a library card.
You must go through the library web site to access for free. Click on the Genealogy tab at the top of the library web page at Then enter your library card number. The next screen should allow searching in the Ancestry database. Heritage quest works the same way. If HeritageQuest asks for a password or pin number, it is usually the last 4 digits of the phone number given to us at the time of registration. If you have a problem getting in or need to know your library card number, call us at 740-869-2430 or e-mail the library at
