No Ancestry Library Edition remote access after December 31st. In-library access will continued to be offered.

Ancestry Library Edition will be in-library use only on January 1, 2022

After nearly 2 years of temporary access, and after most libraries reopened their doors, Ancestry has made the difficult decision to end remote access for ALE at the end of 2021.

Ancestry cares deeply about libraries and their patrons, but they have agreements with publishers and others that prevent them from offering remote access permanently. In-library access remains unchanged. Patrons can access Ancestry Library Edition in the library through desktop computers provided by your library or their own personal laptop, tablet, or mobile phone.

For customers who want to maintain remote access, HeritageQuest Online, powered by Ancestry, continues to offer the best solution. Please contact the Library with questions or concerns.
