RESEARCHING YOUR ANCESTORS IN FEDERAL DEPOSITORY LIBRARY COLLECTIONS

In 1813, the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) was established by Congress to ensure that the American public would have access to its government’s information. Today there are 1,200 depository libraries, including some in the St. Louis area which have publications dating back to the early 19th century. FDLP collections are not necessarily arranged with the genealogist in mind, so it is helpful to know where to look and how to access indexes. In this presentation, Marie Concannon gives strategies for researchers who would like to search FDLP collections for clues about ancestors. She will speak about state government publications for genealogical research as well.
