From the Director -- October 2018

We all have a history that extends back through the generations that preceded us but sometimes that history has been lost. October is Family History Month, the perfect time to start your search for your ancestors at the Summit Library. Last month a Swedish family visited the Summit Library to find their family roots in Summit. They made a good decision making the library a stop in their international search. You too can start building your family tree with the library's subscription to Ancestry.com, available for use only from within the library. If your family has roots in Summit or New Jersey you may find obituaries, news items or other information in local newspapers such as the Herald, the Observer and/or the Dispatch in the Historical Newspaper Database available on the library website.
