world vital records
Searching for your roots is about to get easier. On July 1, 2014, the library launches World Vital Records—an online service that will help you tell your family story. World Vital Records replaces Heritage Quest as the genealogy resource CRRL library card holders can access online remotely.
Unlike Heritage Quest, the new service provides complete U.S. Census data—from 1790 to 1940. You can also search birth, marriage, death, and other vital records from many countries; family trees worldwide; newspapers; and historic U.S. maps.
