Genealogy and Local History

The Mary Lee Robbins Genealogy and Local History Room contains many materials useful for family history research. Microfilm census records are available for Texas and many of the southern states. City directories, cemetery records, vital statistics, and other historical records are available for many states and counties. You may also research Civil War and Revolutionary War materials, passenger and immigration information, and DAR files. Our Genealogy / Local History librarian can assist you in finding the information you seek.

The links listed to the left can help you find information on the Internet. These links have been selected for being of general interest to Longview Public Library users. For convenience, the links included here have been arranged by category. The list below is an index of those categories. Many of the links were found on an excellent, comprehensive web site of genealogy links, called "Cyndi's List of Genealogical Sites on the Internet" . Individual researchers should explore the links on Cyndi's list to find other sites relevant to their own family research. We welcome suggestions for other sites to be included on our site.
