Genealogy Research Guide - Longview

Genealogy is an area of interest for many people; learning about who they are and where they came from.


This Guide is written with two goals in mind: 

  1. Provide resource links for online genealogical research.
  2. Describe the genealogy-related collections of the Longview Library.

It is by no means a comprehensive guide. Sites like Cyndi's List (see the Find Websites tab) are far more comprehensive than anything we could possibly do. This Guide is a starting point.

The left side of this page has several tabs that help organize the information.
