Genealogy Resources

Chapel Hill Public Library no longer offers Ancestry.com. There are other resources available in our area:

  • Ancestry.com is available through the Orange County Library.
  • Heritage Quest is still available through our catalog.
  • The Chapel Hill Historical Society, located in the library, can help with local history and local family research.
  • UNC’s North Carolina Collection includes photographic archives, a historic newspaper project, census records, and several other resources. The public is welcome, though must register first.
  • Lastly, our own staff is happy to help connect you, so please feel free to ask when you’re here.
