During the month of March, we will be highlighting free library resources that help you get a little more "luck" in your life, and it might lead to a hidden pot of gold you didn't know about!

The special topic for today is Genealogy. If you look into your past, maybe your ancestors were royalty. Maybe they had respected military careers. Maybe they were immigrants with a special story that you can only find by digging deeper. Beauregard Parish Library has genealogy resources for you!

If you visit the physical library, most of the genealogy resources we do have will be located under Dewey number 929 in our non-fiction sections. Our print collection of genealogy materials is admittedly small, but that's why we bring our patrons two very lovely digital products that can be used both inside the library and at home.

Heritage Quest
Heritage Quest Genealogy Service
Digitized from the popular UMI Genealogy and Local History collection on microfiche, this online database is an essential collection of unique material for both genealogical hobbyists and professionals.

World Vital Records
World Vital Records Genealogy Resource
1790-1940 U.S. Census records plus thousands of other family history and genealogy records.

Both of the digital resources can be found on the topical resource listing under Genealogy.
