Several libraries in the Upper Hudson Library System subscribe to Ancestry Library Edition for their patrons. Ordinarily, libraries are only able to purchase subscriptions for on-site use. During the pandemic, however, ProQuest has made remote access available at no additional cost to libraries. Remote access is currently set to expire on March 1st, 2021, but may be extended if the majority of libraries are still working under reduced services due to the pandemic.
If you are an East Greenbush/Schodack resident, you can access Ancestry remotely from our login page using your library account number (barcode). If you are not a resident, this link won’t work for you. Check with the public library where you reside to see if they have set up similar access on their website.
If your library doesn’t have access, you can connect to the library’s Wi-Fi and go to https://ancestrylibrary.com. Portions of Ancestry content are available from home to all New York State residents with a free Ancestry.com New York account.
