Genealogy

The Russell County Public Library offers a variety of research materials for patrons who are interested in researching their family history. In addition to local collections, two paid subscription databases are available. The first is Ancestry.com, which is available temporarily for home use. The second, HeritageQuest, is accessible from home or the Library.

Due to KYVL guidelines, we cannot provide the login credentials for Ancestry and other KYVL resources on our website. Please call the Library to request assistance.

Local resources

  • Family histories
  • Cemetery records
  • County histories
  • Beginning genealogy books
  • Birth, death, and marriage records
