Ancestry Library Edition

Access Ancestry Library Edition from your home until December 31, 2021!

After nearly 2 years of temporary access, and after most libraries reopened their doors, Ancestry has made the difficult decision to end remote access for ALE at the end of 2021. Ancestry cares deeply about libraries and their patrons, but they have agreements with publishers and other business considerations that prevent them from offering remote access permanently. Consequently, we must ask that you remove all remote access points from your site by December 31st.

Onsite access remains unchanged.

Patrons can access Ancestry Library Edition through desktop computers provided by your library or their own personal laptop, tablet, or mobile phone.

For customers who want to maintain remote access, HeritageQuest Online, powered by Ancestry, continues to offer the best solution.
