In November 2001, the National Ge
nealogical Society ( NGS) moved their lending library of more than 20,000 books from their headquarters in , to St. Louis County Library’s Special Collections Department in Arlington, Virginia . St. Louis, Missouri
The collection was previously available to only
NGS members. Now, the entire ge nealogical community can access the books through interlibrary loan at their local library. This noteworthy collection, which has strong holdings for East Coast and New England states, contains family histories and published abstracts of cemeteries, church records, court records, deeds, marriages, wills: and related probate records as well as state, county, and local histories.
In this presentation, Ms. Hager covers such elements of how to find, request, obtain, and donate to the
NGS Book Loan Collection.
Founded in 1903, the National Ge
nealogical Society is dedicated to ge nealogy education, high research standards, and the preservation of ge nealogical records. The Arlington, Virginia-based nonprofit is the premier national society for everyone, from the beginner to the most advanced family historian, seeking excellence in publications, educational offerings, research guidance, and opportunities to interact with other ge nealogists.
