New CCGS Library computer doubles online access

In October the CCGS Library acquired its second computer with Internet access for use by members and visiting patrons. This means researchers needn't worry about waiting their turn to access their favorite family history and genealogy databases.

Melissa Speckhardt from Burgebrach, Germany researches her American ancestors on the Library's new computer recently while visiting her grandparents in West Harwich, MA.
The Library's two desktop computers provide free access to the major online genealogy-related databases, including, HeritageQuest, World Vital Records, and New England Historic and Genealogical Society. More databases are in the works, according to Brenda Hayes, CCGS Library Program Director. See the complete list of available databases.

The new computer, a contemporary Dell Desktop running Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, is configured with a wide flat-screen monitor and a fast laser printer.
