"Information about our genealogy collection can be found in our online card catalog (www.gapines.org). To find items classified Genealogy simply click on Advanced Search and change the 'Quick Search' drop down to Call number and type GEN in the field and submit. This will give the patron a listing of all things at Union County Public Library classified as Genealogy. Similiarly, if a patron wishes to find out what other libraries have classified as Genealogy they may first select the library they wish to search in on the online card catalog and then follow the instructions above for doing an advanced search. If a patron needs help learning how to do this for themself, they may come into the library and a staff member will walk them through the procedure."
