Help on Ancestry

Ancestry Library Edition is available on every PC in every branch library. All you need is your library card to access it via our website.

If you ever feel stuck or frustrated have a look at the “Help” link which appears at the top right hand side of most pages. Under the “Answers” tab search your query in the topic lists provided or browse the summary list. The “Learning Center” tab is also an interesting list of articles worth a browse.

The Wiki is a new section on available to subscribers and non-subscribers alike available in the library under the “Help” link. It offers detailed and useful information about family history records, research, and places pulled from The Source: A Guidebook to American Genealogy and Red Book: American State, County, and Town Sources. Currently in Beta stage it hopefully will build its international content.

We welcome your respectful and on-topic comments and questions in this limited public forum. To find out more, please see Appropriate Use When Posting Content. Community-contributed content represents the views of the user, not those of Yarra Plenty Regional Library
