Welcome

Welcome to the Bellevue University guide for Genealogy. The resources in this guide provide information on the methods used to locate family history using both library resources and other types of resources. Library print and electronic books, subscription databases, as well as general websites are included in this guide. Each print book title links directly to the library online catalog, while each ebook title links directly to the full text of the book.  Database recommendations link directly to the specific database.  Recommended websites cover various aspects of the topic.
