Did you receive a DNA genealogy testing kit for the holidays? Now that you’ve spit into your tube, sent it away, and found out that you are a whole 4% Scandinavian, what next? Sure the results can help locate the places you came from, but they do not tell you a whole lot about those people responsible for getting you here.
That’s where we come in! Our kinship Family Heritage Research Center provides a wide variety of services that can help connect you to your past, whether you’re an experienced researcher or just starting out. For those within visiting distance of the center, the library’s helpful staff can connect you to documents from published family histories to local city directories. From within the library, you can connect to services like Ancestry, Fold3, and digitized newspaper collections. Trained staff can also help you navigate local land record databases. For more information on our holdings, check out the kinship Page.
If you can’t make it into kinship, consider using our Research Service! For a reasonable fee, one of our experienced genealogical researchers will work closely with you to uncover your family history! This option is perfect for those without the time or ability to perform research at the kinship Center. Does that sound like someone you know? We even offer gift certificates for research time that make great birthday and holiday presents! Check out the shop for more information on purchasing gift packages.
