MCC librarians have put together a list of genealogical resources!
Want to know more about your family origins? Click on the database links and see what you can find!
We have broken down the guide into the following categories. If at any point you have any questions about identifying or using the Library's collections, please ask a librarian for help.
It is important to note that most genealogical databases use the 1940 census as their main data resource. Please browse the 1940 census section below for more information.
Using the Library
This section is especially intended for those who may need a book or physical item from our library.
This section breaks down resources by county, listing a sampling of county histories and other information.
United States Resources
This section lists examples of resources available at the federal level.
Here you will find links to foreign organizations that can have records like communions, marriages, etc...
Few subjects are as extensively represented on the World Wide Web as genealogy, and there are excellent sites that categorize the resources available on the web. Here we list web-based databases that are available for use by anyone at public computers in the Library, or for use anywhere to current affiliates of MCC.
