The library computers have free access to Ancestry Library Edition, Heritage Quest and Fold3. You can bring your laptop and use the library’s WiFi.
Ancestry is only available on the library computers, but you can access Heritage Quest and Fold3 with your library card. The Butler Center also has a wonderful genealogical book collection, Arkansas county records and Revolutionary War Pensions on microfilm. They have recently become a Family History Library Affiliate, so you can use the Family History Library Catalog to order film and have it sent to the Butler Center for your use.


 There will be volunteers there to give hands on help if needed.
