Special Collections Department at Largo Public Library

The Society houses its collections, by permanent loan contract, in the Genealogy Center at the Largo Public Library. The combined collection is one of the best in the state and includes thousands of references in many different media (print, microfilm, microfiche, and CD-ROM; check here for additional information). Popular genealogy databases and websites (such as Heritage Quest and Ancestry) are available through the library computers. Refer to the Largo Public Library website (http://www.largo.com/department/index.php?fDD=11-0) for an extensive explanation of library assets.

Society members actively participate as volunteer genealogy consultants in the library to assist genealogy patrons. If you need assistance using the collection while you are at the Genealogy Center, or even personal help with your research, look for a consultant. If you are just getting started with your family history, you can get helpful tips from the consultants as well as handouts to point you in the right direction.  If you are planning a visit to the Genealogy Center and need a place to stay, check out a discount offer here.

If your family has roots in the local area, then the Local History Room of the library will be of interest to you. It contains historic photographs, city directories, class yearbooks, oral histories, and more.

Monthly additions of new books were recorder from September 1998 through December 2006 and can be found here.

New books are continually added to the collection.  Over the last few years books from several specialized areas have been added.  These areas are:

A rare book collection is also available with Genea;ogy Center volunteer assistance. Here is an index of that collection.
