Welcome to the Simpson Library Genealogy guide. This guide is designed to help you find sources for genealogical research in the Fredericksburg area.
Simpson Library does not maintain a genealogy collection, but we do have some items that may be of interest to genealogists, including Fredericksburg cemetery records and historical newspapers. We also have a subscription to Ancestry Library Edition, which anyone can use for free on Simpson Library's computers, or while connected to Simpson Library's Wi-Fi. (UMW students, faculty, and staff can access Ancestry from anywhere in the world with their UMW passwords.)
