Libraries Connect Ohio—a partnership among OPLIN, OhioLINK, INFOhio, and the State Library of Ohio—works to provide access to e-resource content to all Ohioans. Some of the most frequently used are the genealogy databases. Join us for this first session of two focused on the variety of online tools to research family history.  This webinar will give an overview of the two general family history services: Ancestry Library Edition and HeritageQuest.  This webinar is freely available to anyone working in Ohio libraries and will be led by Sarah Palmer of ProQuest with additional insights and examples provided by Anne Wachs of Washington-Centerville Public Library.


Attendees to this session will have the opportunity to

  • Learn about the materials included in each service
  • Explore ways to efficiently search
  • Compare the uses and coverage of each resource


Remember--this is a FREE session, open to all individuals working in Ohio libraries!
