  • Godfrey Memorial Library ( Website )

Godfrey Memorial Library has an extensive collection of essential
resources to assist genealogical and historical research. Resources include
newspapers, city and business directories, vital records, printed census

histories, family bible records, and service and pension records.

  • Heritage Quest/ProQuest ( Website )

Heritage Quest online includes the complete set of U.S. Federal Census
images from 1790 to 1930 including names and indexes for many of the sets. Users

history articles. Other online databases include Revolutionary War Pension,

Access to this service will be limited to 1,400 family history centers in
