The New Milford Public Library is now the first public library in Connecticut to become a Family History Center affiliate library! This designation means that you have greater and more convenient access to the wealth of genealogical resources available through the Family History Library.

This affiliation provides access to the world’s largest repository of genealogical records on microfilm through the Church of Latter Day Saints’ famous Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Family History Library has amassed billions of birth, marriage, death, census, land, and court records of genealogical significance from over 130 countries.

This Library is extending access to its collection by circulating microfilms of historic records through select affiliate libraries and the New Milford Public Library is now one of those libraries. It is a priceless resource for area residents interested in discovering their family history.
