If you've ever done research on your family tree, you are probably familiar with the library's Ancestry Library database, which allows you to search for census records, birth records and much more. Because Ancestry Library can only be used inside Fauquier County Public Library's branch locations, we're pleased to now provide anywhere/anytime access to records through our newest database, World Vital Records.

World Vital Records includes the following features:

  • Complete U.S. Census 1790-1940
  • Cemetery records
  • City directories
  • Yearbooks - high school, college and military
  • Historic U.S. maps - including landowner names
  • Ability to access records from home with your library card

The World Vital Records database must be accessed through the library's website (vs. direct link):
