Family History Month

Trace your family tree!

In 2001 Congress passed a resolution designating October as Family History month. Enthusiasts continue to celebrate Family History Month each year.

The Library offers database access, genealogical collections and special events dedicated to help with your research.

Starting October 1, MyHeritage, a new genealogy database, will be available. It offers:

  • 8 billion historical records
