Have you been watching “Who do you think you are?” and wondering about your own family history? Search census records and family histories right from your home. From our homepage click on HeritageQuest in the left column and use your 13-digit Pember Library barcode to access  unique primary sources, local and family histories, and finding aids that truly help people fill the gaps in their personal histories.

Other records in HeritageQuest are:

  • PERSI, a comprehensive subject index covering genealogy and local history periodicals since 1800
  • Freedman’s Bank, records from African American depositors
  • Revolutionary War Pension Applications Collection, selected records from family Bibles, personal letters, battle accounts, and more
  • U.S. Serial Set, selected memorials, petitions and private relief actions of the U.S. Congress

Here is a quick 2-minute video to get you started on Heritage Quest.

HeritageQuest is sponsored by the Friends of the Pember Library.
