Work on your family tree together


Have you ever made—or wanted to make—a family tree? Are you interested in the history of your family or other families? People all over the world like to celebrate their family history during the month of March, and this year, the Arizona Genealogical Advisory Board and the Arizona State Library are hosting a virtual event to celebrate the first Arizona Genealogy Day on March 20. But you don’t need an official holiday to celebrate family and heritage! In fact, the Pima County Public Library has lots of fun resources to explore year-round.

Get started using the E-Library

If you are interested in researching your own family’s history, also known as genealogy, a great place to start is the E-Library, which offers free access resources like Ancestry.com. All you need is your library card.
