World Vital Records database now accessable from the CCGS Genealogy Library

The CCGS Genealogy Library has recently added a new database to the resources available online at the library. Reports Betsy Ferris, CCGS Librarian, "In addition to Ancestry.com, NewEnglandAncestors.com from NEHGS, and Heritage Quest online, we now make available WorldVitalRecords.com."

WorldVitalRecords.com is a new genealogy Web site consisting of 1 billion plus records in 11,000 different databases, and the site is still growing. Users report satisfaction and success with the site's search engine, and it has become one of the most popular genealogical websites this year. Coverage is worldwide, including the U. S. and the U. K. There is a browse by country feature, which lets users see a list of the databases for a particular area.

According to Brenda Hayes, CCGS Library Director, "This addition to our library databases broadens the scope of genealogy research which can be accomplished locally."

The Cape Cod Genealogical Society's Genealogy Room is located in the Dennis Public Library, 5 Hall Street, Dennis Port, MA.
