Many people embarking on family history research start with the computer. Come and learn more about some great electronic resources that you can use either at the New Jersey State Library or from home. Regina Fitzpatrick, our Genealogy Librarian, will discuss the resources listed below and do some live demos of useful features. 1. HeritageQuest is a family history research database that any New Jersey resident can access from home with their local public library card through JerseyClicks. 2. FamilySearch.org is a free website accessible from home with tons of digital collections and research information. 3. The New Jersey State Archives has a series of searchable online indexes and records databases that are freely accessible from home. 4. Ancestry Library Edition is probably the most well known electronic resource for genealogy, but many users are overwhelmed and don’t know where to start. WE WILL NOT BE DEMOING PERSONAL RESEARCH REQUESTS
