A complete guide to state libraries, archives and historical societies—including details on services for distant researchers.
Of course, the best way to support state libraries is to use them. To help you track which ones have resources relevant to your research, we've compiled this guide to statewide repositories and their treasures. Our list covers state archives, libraries and historical societies that have important genealogical holdings — 86 in all, arranged from Alabama to Wyoming. Each listing highlights that repository's key resources for long-distance research, including interlibrary loan programs, online databases and reference services. Be sure to visit the Web sites for more details.
