We will be happy to assist you in starting your family research. Email lfox@sailsinc.org for further details.

The Wilfred Silvia Genealogy Room is open to the public, however, its use is governed by the following rules:

  • Patrons must sign in at the Main Desk before using the Genealogy Room.
  • All Genealogy Room materials must remain within the room: Items may not be taken to other Library areas.
  • Much of this collection would be difficult or impossible to replace: Thank you for taking care with the collection.
