NGS Book Loan Collection Video Online


ARLINGTON, VA, 21 July 2011: The National Genealogical Society proudly announces the release of an online presentation about the NGS Book Loan Collection presented by St. Louis County Reference Specialist, Ruth Ann Hager, CG, CGL2.

In November 2001, the National Genealogical Society (NGS) moved their lending library of more than 20,000 books from their headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, to St. Louis County Library’s Special Collections Department in St. Louis, Missouri.

The collection was previously available to only NGS members. Now, the entire genealogical 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 Genealogical Society is dedicated to genealogy education, high research standards, and the preservation of genealogical 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 genealogists. Please visit the NGS Pressroom for further information.
