We are pleased to announce that we will be continuing our education classes and Saturday programs through a webinar platform called Zoom.
You will be asked to register for all events, including Saturday programs. After registering, a link to join the webinar will be emailed to you ahead of the scheduled time for the webinar.  Please check your email for more information.
In the meantime, stay safe and stay well.  

During our Shelter In Place period, we have collected a series of articles, tips and suggestions and encourage you to take some time with online resources to dig into your research, find that lost relative, or break through that brick wall. Here are some materials we have collected for you. We have also created an area with suggestions and projects to keep you busy while you shelter in place and a FORUM for messaging and discussion. Please feel free to post your questions, your brick walls and even your victories! 

New content is added several times a week, so check back often.  As isolated as we are, let's stay in touch virtually through our love of genealogy!

Tip Library Edition is now temporarily available to use from home with a Douglas County Library card. Go to, click on RESEARCH and then Research Databases. Scroll down to History and Genealogy and click on Ancestry Plus. Enter your library card number and pin and you're in!
