The subscription services Ancestry.com and Footnote.com are available to use at no charge for in-library use for Longview, Texas Library patrons who have a Longview Public Library borrower’s card.

You live in Texas.
You are 18 years of age or older.
You can provide proof of Texas residency.
You have a valid state ID or driver’s license.”
You can see other digital databases available on the library website at http://www.longview.lib.tx.us/drupal/databases. These include Archive of Americana and the TexShare databases among many others.
This information was shared this week at a meeting featuring Longview Public Library’s genealogy librarian Linda Laminack.
