Genealogy Club currently meets online via Zoom. Learn all about internet and archival genealogy and research support.

Our next meeting is Wednesday, October 20, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.

Expand your genealogy search from home with Ancestry Library, a research tool for genealogy and local history. Through it you can examine census data, the American Genealogical Biographical Index, and more. While typically only for in-library use, this service is available for home use for Bloomingdale Public Library Cardholders through December 31, 2021.
Bloomingdale Public Library is a FamilySearch Affiliate Library. Using the library's computers or Wi-Fi, you can access millions of locked FamilySearch digital records that are only available in a Family History Center or Affiliate Library. Free personal account is required and locked records are only accessible for in-library use.
See all of our October/November programming in the Village Almanac (in mailboxes soon) or see just the Library portion here. You can pick up a paper version in the library, as well.
