Clearview Library Adds Genealogy Databases

Clearview Library District Database Spotlight

Soldiers and family

The Clearview Library District now offers genealogy databases Ancestry Library Edition and Fold3, accessible for free with a library card.

“These resources will allow our patrons to not only learn more about themselves and their families, but also what is unique and special about the community we live in,” said Jennifer Bradley, Adult Programming and Collections Librarian.

With Ancestry Library Edition, users can explore their personal history with access to billions of names and sources that include Census data, vital records, immigration records, family histories, court and legal documents, directories, photos, maps, and more.

Fold3 provides access to military records, allowing users to discover stories, photos, and personal documents of the men and women who served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

“Ancestry and Fold3 are two powerful online databases for genealogy and historical research,” Bradley said. “While Fold3 shares the experiences of America’s military veterans through millions of military records, Ancestry helps users discover their family histories.”
