Ancestry Library Edition

The Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives is partnering with KYVL to provide access to Ancestry Library Edition through June 2023.

Ancestry Library Edition brings the world’s most popular consumer online genealogy resource to your library, delivering billions of records in census data, vital records, directories, photos, and more. It’s an unprecedented online collection of individuals from North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, and more.

Remote access - temporary

Ancestry Library Edition was available remotely through December 2021.  Temporarily, as an answer to closures due to COVID, ProQuest turned on the remote access so KYVL members could use Ancestry Library Edition away from their library's physical locations.  

If you need the correct URL for your website, email  Starting January 2022, postsecondary institutions may offer remote access but school districts and public libraries will be onsite access only.
