If you want to be part of the popular ancestry search trend, you may not need to look any further than the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia (FamilySearch.org, AHSGR) which is now a FamilySearch Affiliate Library. This means it has access to more genealogy resources to help you make more family discoveries. FamilySearch is a world leader in family history.

There are only a few hundred affiliate libraries in the country. The designation means local patrons will now have greater and more convenient access to the wealth of genealogical resources available through FamilySearch.

The popular web service has over six billion searchable names and two billion images of historical genealogical records—and you get the helpful assistance of library staff.
FamilySearch adds over 300 million free genealogical records and images online yearly from all over the world and manages the famous FamilySearch Library in Salt Lake City. It has amassed billions of birth, marriage, death, census, land and court records from more than 130 countries to help you discover and make family connections.

“Libraries are wonderful local gathering places for learning. We are excited to have the AHSGR as our newest FamilySearch Affiliate Library. It will help FamilySearch expand opportunities for fun, personal discoveries and family connections to the local community,” said Paul Nauta, FamilySearch Public Relations Manager.
