Are you doing genealogical research? If you can, be sure to come into the library to use https://www.ancestrylibrary.com/ Any device (phone, tablet, computer) should work, you'll need to access the website through Atchison Library's internet.
The Atchison Library has a copy Sheffield Ingalls'History of Atchison County, Kansas, but did you know that this book is searchable and easier to print online? Click the link to find out. You should be able to access this from anywhere with an internet connection--no driver's license required!
What about researching your house or another building in Atchison? The library has binders full of Kansas Historical Resource Index print-outs of information about various Atchison city and county homes. But much of this information is also available online here.
The Kansas Room continues to have our obituary file, organized by our genealogical society volunteers. We are also in the process of digitizing the obituary file for easier remote access. If you would like to volunteer to help with this project please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
All these links have been tested, but since the internet is always evolving, please email Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org if you find a link that does not work!
