Find Your Roots with FamilySearch

LCPL's certificate of license - we are now an official FamilySearch center!

LCPL is now an official FamilySearch center! FamilySearch is the world's largest repository of free genealogical records. They're based in Utah, but now you can read their microfilm collection right here in Indiana!

For a small fee (to cover shipping), FamilySearch will send any microfilm you order to the Merrillville branch, where we'll help you read it and make a copy. Then we'll take care of shipping it back. Learn more.

Use Your Library Card Throughout Indiana!

LCPL has just joined over a hundred other Indiana libraries to make your library card better than ever.

Your LCPL card is now valid at libraries throughout the state! Just bring it with you to another participating library and gain access to thousands more books. Learn more...
