Kalamazoo, MI –

Local History librarian Beth Timmerman recently added an updated and more easily navigated genealogy homepage to the Local History section of KPL’s website.

The new page prominently highlights many more of the Local History Room’s resources for genealogists, including the library’s comprehensive Local Information Database. This database, continually updated by library staff members, now includes close to three million citations to local newspapers and magazines about people, places, and events in Kalamazoo.

The Kalamazoo Valley Genealogical Society welcomed Beth as their speaker at their November meeting. Beth showcased the new genealogy page as well as the Local History section of the new KPL website for KVGS members. Many at the program were impressed with all the resources available via the Local History webpages.

Have a specific genealogy or Local History question? Contact Beth. KPL’s Local History staff members answer 600+ inquiries each month, from births, deaths, and census data to information about local events, buildings, and businesses, using databases, city directories, KPL’s own historical records, and more.
