MCPL does not subscribe to Ancestry.com.  However, we do subscribe to HeritageQuest, another genealogy resource, which includes U.S. Census and  military records plus over 25,000 full-text family and local histories.

Access HeritageQuest, with your MCPL library card number and PIN, from MCPL's guide to genealogy resources.

Frederick County, Prince George's County, Howard County, and Arlington County public libraries all provide in-branch access to Ancestry Library Edition, if you would like to go to one of their libraries.

Also, the Library of Congress provides access within its facilities to Ancestry Library Edition.  To use it there, you will have to register for a Reader Identification Card.
