Genealogy Resources on the Internet

 

Ponca City Library


The Ponca City Library provides a number of internet portals that are useful for genealogy research. All are free and available through the use of the computers at the library and most are also accessible from a personal computer. All of these (except viewing the card catalog) require that the user have a current library card and associated pin number. Library cards are available at the library for residents in Kay County and for some adjacent areas at no charge with the presentation of a current driver’s license (check with the library about available alternatives). The use of library computers by persons living outside of the designated local area is available for a small fee.

The following is a listing of some of these resources and current access information.

Ancestry (Library Edition)
Public access to this resource is only available through the computers in the library computer room. Check with the library about availability and scheduling.
