Don't pay .com to trace roots; Use Peru library


NT Staff




Peru Public Library is now providing access to World Vital Records. Library members can access the database anytime at the library or at home.

World Vital Records is a massive library database with billions of Family History and Genealogy records and millions of family trees. Peru library patrons may access U.S. Federal Census images and indexes from 1790 to 1940 (the most recently opened census), military records, the enhanced Social Security Death Index (SSDI) records, millions of newspaper articles among other local and international collections.

“We are ecstatic to offer local genealogists access into World Vital Records,” library director Charm Ruhnke said. “With the ability for remote access the database is available 27/7 anywhere you have internet. Patrons using World Vital Records from home will need the barcode on their Peru library card to log into the database.”

World Vital Records joins the library’s other databases: Freegal Music, Zinio, Consumer Reports, America’s News, OMNI and eRead Illinois as the library’s eCollection.
