The databases are, for the most part, subscription resources purchased by the library. They may be accessed from within the library without a library card. All databases (except Ancestry Library Edition) can also be accessed from home, but most require a Wichita Falls Public Library card and a PIN (usually the last 4 digits of your phone number). Texshare databases (supplied to us from the Texas State Library) have a separate login which you may get from the Reference Desk if you are a library cardholder.
The websites have been selected by librarians at WFPL, and are recommended based on their quality, accuracy, and usability.
We have an extensive collection of genealogy materials at the library and have compiled a list of some of our favorite genealogy websites and databases.
If you have questions, or would like help using these resources, ask a librarian! Reference Desk - 940-767-0868, ext 235 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
