(Source: WGCL)

Gwinnett County libraries are now offering several different genealogy databases making it easier for you to research your own family history or even community information.

Richard Porter has one goal at work.

"My role is to find out what they want, see what resources are available."

Resources inside Gwinnett County libraries, which include those that dig into the past.

"A lot of us don't know a lot about any generation beyond one of our parents," he explained.

The library system has always provided the genealogy databases ancestry version and Heritage Quest but because of high demand they've added Find My Past, Fold Three and Gale Genealogy Connect.

"Genealogy is very popular these days trying to find something about where do I come from, what's my history?"

One of the more popular according to Porter is Fold Three which offers historical military records.
