Changes to Ancestry Library Edition

State Library card holders can enjoy remote access to Ancestry Library Edition until 31 December 2021. 

From 1 January 2022, you will only be able to access the platform onsite at the State Library and some other NSW public libraries. 

Thanks to Ancestry and ProQuest for their generous support in providing broader access to family historians across the state during the COVID-19 lockdowns.
