"It seems to me the book has not just aesthetic values-- the charming little clothy box of the thing, the smell of the glue, even the print, which has its own beauty. But there's something about the sensation of ink on paper that is in some sense a thing, a phenomenon rather than an epiphenomenon. I can't break the association of electric trash with the computer screen. Words on the screen give the sense of being just another passing electronic wriggle."

—John Hoyer Updike (b. 1932) American writer, Rabbit, Run, Rabbit at Rest

Welcome to Genealogy at Barclay Library!




Genealogy is an interesting and rewarding hobby. Researching your family's past is rather like looking for buried treasure: your search will take you to different places, introduce you to new people, and will often yield surprises.

We have a wide variety of genealogy and local history resources here at the library. In this web tour we will show you what we have and how you can access it.

As we continue to organize and digitize our collection, and to receive more contributions from the local community, we will add the resources you can access online and in the library.
