Have you ever wondered about your family history? Or maybe you’ve started your research but are looking for more information. The Library has resources to help! 

To research various records, directories, newspapers, photos, and more, try Ancestry Library (in-library use only). You can search family members by name and connect with other researchers to gather information. To research you’re family’s military past, try Fold3. With access to millions of military records, you can search by family names, conflicts/wars, places and dates. 

To get started, visit bcpl.org/borderlands and click either the Ancestry icon or the Fold3 icon. For additional help, make an appointment with a Borderlands Archive and History Center staff member by calling (859)342-2665 ext. 8134 or email borderlands@bcpl.org.
