NEW DATABASES

HeritageQuest Online

This online database offers unique material for both genealogical and historical researchers, with coverage dating back to the late 1700s. It includes all of the images, and extensive indexing, from the 1790 - 1930 U.S. federal censuses; offers more than 20,000 book titles, including nearly 8,000 family histories and over 12,000 local histories; and has more than 250 primary-source documents such as tax lists, city directories, probate records, and more.  Some invaluable sources of information included are: Periodical Source Index (PERSI), a widely recognized resource guide, updated annually, that covers more than 6,300 genealogy and history periodicals written in English and French (Canada) since 1800; the Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty Land Warrant Application Files, which identifies more than 80,000 American military, naval, and marine officers and enlisted men; and the forthcoming Freedman’s Bank Records is a database that documents more than 70,000 bank depositors and their dependants and heirs. The Freedman’s Bank Records is considered one of the most important resources for African-American genealogical research. Remote access to the database is available through the Library home page.
