Family and Local Histories Collection Announcement

Ancestry.com has released a new product titled “The Family and Local Histories Collection.” The initial launch is the beginning of a new and revitalized source for Family and Local Histories on the Internet for genealogy research. It is the largest collection online of its kind, and we will grow this collection weekly to keep it the largest online resource for family and local histories. Besides Ancestry.com’s commitment to grow the collection weekly, we will improve it significantly making it not only the largest collection online, but also the most useful for our customers. The Family and Local Histories collection on Genealogy.com represents a portion of the Ancestry.com Family and Local Histories collection.

One strong reason family and local histories are so useful is because they “bring together, in one place, valuable data from many different sources. Because of this 'bringing together' they are very useful, but you cannot rely on their accuracy until it has been proven.” (Val D. Greenwood, The Researcher’s Guide to American Genealogy, 3rd edition, (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Company, 1990), p. 184). This new subscription is the best place online to look for previously published research on your ancestor. Once you have found an ancestor, all of Ancestry.com’s other collections (Immigration, U.S. Federal Census, U.K. & Ireland, Historical Newspapers, and U.S. Records) of primary records become valuable resources for documentation.
