Ancestry Library Edition access restrictions

No remote access is allowed for public libraries, genealogical and historical societies, government agencies, for-profit corporations, and non-profit organizations.

Remote access may be available for academic institutions, with the following certain restrictions:

  • Only currently enrolled students and active faculty are allowed remote access.
  • No remote access for alumni and faculty emeritus. (However, on-campus access is permissible for all groups.)
  • Users must be authenticated via the schools' website using IP address or Referring URL. No username/password access

What is the difference between and Ancestry Library Edition?

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.
