All Ulster County residents with a valid library card now have access to HeritageQuest and Fold3, two comprehensive resources for historical and genealogical research, funded by the Ulster County Legislature.

HeritageQuest allows researchers to search U.S. Federal Census records, digitized family and local history books, Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty Land Warrant Application Files and the Freedman’s Bank Records (1865-1874), maps, and a wealth of other historical collections and research guides.

Fold3 provides convenient access to US military records, including the stories, photos and documents of the men and women who served. It contains millions of records from world-class archives, many of which are exclusively available on Fold3. Fold3 is invaluable for historians, genealogists, researchers, military enthusiasts, veterans and their families, teachers and battle reenactors.

All library cardholders can access these resources anywhere, anytime. Click here to learn how to get started and for information on other genealogical offerings.
