Genealogical Research

HeritageQuest Online is a unique, growing collection of research materials for tracing family history and researching American culture. Beginning or professional genealogists can now use this powerful online library, with original page images for all documents, from the convenience of their home or at the library.  HeritageQuest Online is designed specifically for patrons in public libraries who are either just beginning their family research or who after years of work are still uncovering their past.  With over 25,000 books, the entire U.S. Federal Census, PERSI™ (Periodical Source Index), and other expanding collections, HeritageQuest Online gives any individual the chance to tap in to one of the largest collections of genealogy material in the country.

WPL patrons may access the databases in the library or remotely using a username and password acquired from a librarian.  Stop by or email to request access – be sure to include your name, phone number, and 14-digit WPL patron number (under the barcode on your library card) in the email.
