Remote access will be available through December 31, 2021, courtesy of ProQuest and its partner, Ancestry. Normally, Ancestry Library Edition can only be accessed via the library wifi or a library computer.
With Ancestry Library Edition, you can search records that include the US Federal Census (1790 to 1940), the Social Security Death Index, draft registration records, passenger lists, directories, narratives, probate, land title records, and some Canadian and UK census records.
To access Ancestry from home: go to My Account, log in with your New Providence library card barcode number and PIN (last 4 digits of your card number). Then click on Ancestry.com. Here is where the Ancestry link will be found on that page:
