14 Best Libraries for Genealogy via Brand New Pinterest Feature

Libraries Pinterest BoardAre you wondering how to find the best public libraries for genealogy research? Travel this very special map on my brand new Pinterest board, and click to explore some of my favorites (in no particular order.)

The collections of these libraries span nationally and internationally, so don’t let their physical location fool you.

This map is part of my brand new Pinterest board “Best U.S. Libraries for Genealogy Research,” just one of my 33 boards  (many of which are family history themed) on the free Pinterest site. Visit Lisa’s Boards

This mapping feature called “Place Pins” was just announced officially today by Pinterest.com. You can now add one of these maps to any of your boards.

These 14 library pins include details on the collections they contain. Click the pin on the map, you’ll get contact information for the library. Click “Learn More” and you’ll be taken instantly to the library’s website.

If you still haven’t found just the collection you are looking for with these 14 stellar libraries, click the 15th pin which will take you to headquarters of OCLC, the home of WorldCat.org. From there you can search libraries across the country and around the world.
