If you’re stuck inside and trying to use this time to tackle some family genealogy research, Heritage Quest is a great resource. It’s an online database of records with broad searchability. Created by ancestory.com, users can access the database for free thru the library system.
Step 1: Go to flls.org and select the FOR THE PUBLIC drop down menu. Click on HeritageQuest. Users will be redirected to the main search page of HeritageQuest.
Step 2: Begin your search.
Something to keep in mind – if you’re searching for a specific person in a specific place, remember that town names changes, county lines move, and misspellings did occur. Keep searches to within a date range, and search criteria broad enough not to exclude results that may be helpful.
