To provide assistance for our genealogy researchers, the Jackson County Library has purchased a subscription to Heritage Quest which will enable you to log in from your home computer and search the resources of ProQuest, a subsidiary of Ancestry. Ancestry is for use in the library only. These resources include census records, books, periodicals, Revolutionary War records, and family histories. You must have a library card to use this new feature. You must be a Jackson County resident, work or pay taxes in Jackson County for us to issue a library card to you.
Click on the link below to access the site. Enter your library card number preceded by the letter “p” and a zero “0”. There must be five digits in the bar code, preceded by the letter “p”, for you to log in. If your card number is 12, then your log-in bar code would be p00012.
Should you experience difficulty when attempting to log in to ProQest, please give us a call at 870-523-2952. We hope you enjoy this new service and will find it helpful to your research.
