Hi All,

I hope you're coping with everything going on right now and are finding solace where you can. I wanted to write, first off, to let you know that you can still contact Virginia Room staff at [email protected] As circumstances change we may take a little longer to get back to you and some resources may not be available to us but we'll do our best to help with your request.

The other reason I'm contacting you is that Proquest (the parent company of Ancestry) is granting use of Ancestry Library Edition from home (at least for now.) If you go to www.rvl.info you'll see a link for Ancestry on the left side. Click on that link, then put in your Roanoke Public Libraries card number and PIN to log in to the site. Once you do that, a link to access Ancestry will appear.

If you do not have a Roanoke Public Libraries account or don't remember what it is, please contact me at [email protected] or leave a message for me at (540) 853-6416. I'll be happy to work with you to get you set up and on the system!

Again, stay safe! We look forward to having you all back in the Virginia Room before we know it!
