On Saturday, November 23rd, we shared our happy news that we (NCGS) have become an affiliate library for FamilySearch!
When using our NCGS computer in our library, you will have access to an additional 400,000,000+ images on FamilySearch than you do not have access to from home (unless you are already member of their church).
When you are researching in the FamilySearch Catalog, you may come across a collection that is locked by the key above the camera:
If you click on the locked camera, you will see a screen similar to this:
Now if you visit our NCGS library, use our computer, and look at that same collection, you will see the key is no longer there:
And if you then click into the camera, you will then be able to see the images and zoom in to look at them closely:
Come visit us! Our library is located on the 2nd floor of the Niagara County Historical Society located at 215 Niagara St., Lockport, NY 14094. We are open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 1 – 4:45pm.
