This part of the library catalogue provides you with digital resources and links to hard copy resources to inspire you to find out more about the area you live in and your family history.
All libraries have a small collection of local history books for loan and there are specialist titles to help you trace your family tree.
All branch libraries and some Mobile Libraries have computers so that you can consult Ancestry Library Edition and Find My Past. With these sites you can access historic census returns and a huge range of other historical information.
Trace your ancestry and build a family tree by researching extensive birth records, census data, obituaries and more with findmypast
Full free access to Find my Past is only available within East Riding Libraries.
GENUKI provides a virtual reference library of genealogical information of particular relevance to the UK and Ireland. It is a non-commercial service, maintained by a charitable trust and a group of volunteers.
Some libraries have drop in advice sessions organised by the East Yorkshire Family History Society (EYFHS). To see if your local library holds these sessions click the link below.
