Home > Reading Room > Genealogy Resources

Over the past few decades, genealogical research has been revolutionized with the help of electronic databases, DNA analysis, and improved access to historical documents at libraries and archives.  The growing number of Web resources and available volunteers have also made considerable difference to those who could not find information, using conventional research methods.  This Genealogical resource page was developed with assistance from the Local History  and Genealogy Department at the Toledo-Lucas Public Library, and was subsequently expanded to include other resources.  We hope to assist visitors in their search for ancestors, long-lost relatives, and related information.
