FamilySearch Affilate Library

As of 2020, Olson Memorial Library is a Family Search Affiliate Library.  While FamilySearch is a free genealogy website that can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection, at OML you have access to over 2 billion digitized records, including 400 million images that are currently not available to the public outside of our Library or a FamilySearch family history center.
