Who’s Your Daddy’s Daddy?

Article related photo.Have you ever wondered where you came from or who your ancestors were? Genealogy, the study of family ancestory, is not just for academics; it’s for anyone interested in tracing their family’s history. That search will be made a whole lot easier by beginning at Alumni Library online.

The Alumni Library’s genealogy resource center houses more than a dozen of the best genealogy sites on the Internet, all conveniently compiled in one location. Search for great-grandparents or connect with long-lost relatives from other parts of the world. Discover family information you never knew before without ever leaving the comfort of your home.

Genealogical research allows you to piece together the story of your family. Find out where your family came from in “the old country” and see if you have any notable relatives—maybe a Civil War hero or even a president of the United States. The Alumni Library’s genealogy resource center is your first stop on the quest to find answers about your family.

The genealogy resource center is just one of the many resources on Alumni Library. View more than 500,000 Penn State photos, access the Historical Digital Collegian and online La Vie, find an ATM in Paris through the travel center, and more on Alumni Library.

And just for members of the Alumni Association, free access to a collection of specialized databases—and these databases are not accessed by your run-of-the-mill Google search. Through ProQuest, Project MUSE and JStore, alumni have access to full-text national newspapers; thousands of trade magazines; more than 1,000 academic journals, more than 1 million images, letters; and other primary sources of research; and so much more. Check it out.
