Indexes to US, Canada, and UK census; to birth, death, marriage records; immigration, passenger lists, and naturalization records. Ancestry.com can usually only be accessed inside the library. However, the database is temporarily available for remote access through the end of September. You will require a Plano Library card. On the login page, you will see a message noting a $2.50 charge for postage. Please disregard the message; there is no charge to use Ancestry.com.
