Library Adds Ancestry.Com to Local Resources

The Winston County Library has recently added
Library Edition to the list of available resources for our patrons. Library patrons can access through a link on the library computers. The program features vital records, census and court records, photos and directories and military records, as well as many other features to help patrons access information about their relatives and loved ones.

The genealogy website was added to the computers in all of the Mid-Mississippi Library System libraries in Attala, Holmes, Leake, Montgomery and Winston Counties. Library Edition can only be used in the libraries. Patrons will have the ability to enter the site through a Card Catalog on the library home page and filter by collection, location, dates or languages, or search the Card Catalog by title and keywords. Records in specific states can be found by using an interactive map included in the program.

For more information on Library edition, contact the Winston County Library at 662-773-3212.
