Q: Can I research my family roots at the library?

  • A: The library has a small collection of genealogy books and many records useful in genealogy research are available online and can be accessed at the library. We also subscribe to Ancestry.com which can only be used inside the library and HeritageQuest, which can be used inside the library or accessed from home with a valid Vineland Public Library card. Because genealogical research is very time consuming, the Reference librarians can show you how to access these online resources and what books the library owns, but they will not be able to assist you in your research. The Vineland Historical Society (856)691-1111 may hold material useful for your local genealogy research.
