Libraries celebrate National Family History Month               

A great opportunity to celebrate families is at the library! A variety of genealogy-related resources are available at your library including books, magazines, databases (including Ancestry.com at your Library, and HeritageQuest in libraries and at home with your library card), historical newspapers, and occasional programs.  Many of the Chester County Libraries have a local history collection which can provide insights into what the area and life was like in Chester County in times past.
