Ancestry Family History Library Edition

The Ancestry Insider says that Family History Centers now have access to the Ancestry Family History Library Edition, which has the same genealogy databases as Ancestry.com.

Ancestry Library Edition, available at the Glenview Library, is marketed and distributed by ProQuest. Because ProQuest charges separately for some content in the normal Ancestry.com subscription, Ancestry.com and ProQuest leave those databases out of Ancestry Library Edition.

These include some newspapers, some obituaries, some books, PILI, BGMI, and PERSI. Ancestry.com also leaves out most tree-based databases.

All of these are available in Family History Centers with the Ancestry Family History Library Edition.

Most of them are also available through the Glenview Library website. Login using your Glenview Library card barcode number.

Passenger And Immigration Lists Index (PILI) and its supplements are available in the Genealogy & Local History Room at R929.373 PAS GENEALOGY.
