Ancestry.com Now at Nassau Free Library

The Nassau Free Library is pleased to announce library patrons can now access the noted family history research site Ancestry.com for free at the Library. Through arrangements with the provider and the Upper Hudson Library System, a library version of the program can be accessed using either library computers or personal laptops with Wi-Fi capability within Library confines.

The Library will offer one-on-one hour-long sessions with those not familiar with Ancestry.com to help them start their own family research project.
