The National Genealogical Society proudly announces the release of a free online presentation about the NGS Book Loan Collection presented by St. Louis County Reference Specialist, Ruth Ann Hager, cg, cgl . You can see this presentation at NGS would like to thank FamilySearch for producing this wonderful resource and making it available to family history enthusiasts.

In November 2001, the National Genealogical Society (NGS) moved their lending library of more than 20,000 books from their headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, to St. Louis County Library’s Special Collections Department in St. Louis, Missouri.

The collection was previously available to only NGS members.  Now, the entire genealogical community can access the books through interlibrary loan at their local library.  This noteworthy collection, which has strong holdings for East Coast and New England states, contains family histories and published abstracts of cemeteries, church records, court records, deeds, marriages, wills: and related probate records as well as state, county, and local histories. 

In this presentation, Ms. Hager covers such elements of how to find, request, obtain, and donate to the NGS Book Loan Collection. You can see this presentation at
