Our Library Home Page Has Changed Slightly; Note Where You Can Get To My Blog And Genealogy Databases

Hi Everyone!

STDL ImageIf you have been using our library’s genealogy databases from home as well as accessing my blog, you need to be aware of a slight change in our website in order to get to the above resources.  This change has just occurred in the last few days.  Our library’s website can be found at www.schaumburglibrary.org or at www.stdl.org.

Our genealogy databases and my blog could previously be accessed through a link at the top of our home page that used to say “Local History and Genealogy”.  That link is now gone.

Instead of that link you will now see at the top of our home page that the “Research” category to access databases has been changed to now say “Research and Genealogy”.  You can now click on that link to get to the next page.

On the next page just look for the link category titled “History and Genealogy”.  Click on that link.

On the next page you can select the link that says “Genealogy” that will now get you to the genealogy databases that our library has for you to help with your research.  Nothing has changed on what databases we have for genealogy or which ones you can access from home or only from in the library.

From our redesigned home page you can get to my blog in either of 2 ways.  On our home page at www.schaumburglibrary.org or www.stdl.org, just look on the right side of the home page, scroll down a little bit and look for the identifier that says “Library News”.  In this category you will see a link to “Library Blogs”.  Click on that link and you will find a listing of links to 5 library blogs.  One of the links is mine and it is titled “Genealogy With Tony”.

Another way to get to my blog via our library’s website is to select the “Research and Genealogy” link at our home page.  Then select “History & Genealogy”.  On the next page just look on the right side and you will see the pictorial icon you could click on that says “Tony’s Genealogy Blog”.

Independent of our library’s website,  you can always get to my blog directly via the WordPress URL at www.genealogywithtony.wordpress.com.

I know change can be hard when the familiarity of accessing resources is altered.

Our changes to get you to the genealogy databases are not all that massive and are somewhat intuitive from the wording used to change the “Research” link for database access to “Research & Genealogy”.  But, nonetheless, the pathways you were familiar with are now slightly different.

This post will also give you that added insight into moving about our site to find your familiar genealogy databases as well as my blog.

New pathways, same great resources!

I know you will be able to adapt quickly to the new pathways to get to these resources.

  1. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
