Remote Access for Ancestry Library Edition Ends December 31, 2021



Statement from ProQuest:

"Beginning in March 2020, access to Ancestry Library Edition was temporarily expanded during Covid-19 shutdowns to allow remote access for those Public Libraries that could provide a secure method of authentication. After nearly 2 years of temporary remote access, Ancestry has made the difficult decision to end it. Remote access for Ancestry Library Edition will no longer be available after December 31, 2021."


Things that haven't changed:


  • Ancestry remains accessible from any public library computer.

  • MCMLS's Genealogy and Local History Room is open Monday - Saturday from 9AM to 5PM.

  • Genealogy staff are available by email or phone (936-522-2138) for your questions.
