Before you trek to a library to find A Commemorative History of Antelope County, Nebraska or Descendants of Floyd Floosickle, 1750-1920, try tapping these online collections of digitized local and family history books—you can search thousands of tomes simultaneously and even save copies to your computer.

To locate other online histories, check USGenWeb’s county pages, the Online Books Page and the Internet Archive.
