Reminder--Ancestry Library Edition Home Access Ends December 31 #announcements #records #canada #usa

This is a reminder that the ProQuest-Ancestry Library Edition that was made available remotely for almost two years ends on December 31, 2021. During the pandemic, Ancestry permitted ProQuest to offer the Ancestry Library Edition remotely in North America  for those libraries that have Ancestry subscriptions. I have been advised that Ancestry notified ProQuest that the remote access ends on December 31, 2021 as more public libraries have reopened.

 

You need to check with your local library if they have a ProQuest Ancestry subscription that you can access remotely until December 31st.  A library card for that library or library system will be required to access the remote Ancestry access until December 31st. After that date access will only be in the library on their computers.
