Nationally recognized resource center. U.S. Census schedules, family genealogies and county sources for all U.S. states offer excellent opportunities for the family historian. The 52,000 square foot Midwest Genealogy Center is part of the Mid-Continent Public Library system. MCPL has a long history of providing outstanding genealogy resources. The new center is simply the next step in the growth of the system.

Amongst its many features, the MGC houses a uniquely expansive circulating collection and almost completely open stacks. New technology is also a major attribute of the building. Microfilm reader-printers, two self-digitization stations, and significant database access allow researchers to use today's technology to assist their investigation

Excellent time at MGC

Sandi S. - Boynton Beach, FL

My husband and I visit our family in KC several times a year and never miss visiting MGC for classes or research. Staff is friendly and very knowledgable and services are free.

I would recommend to those who live in the area or those just visiting that they don't miss a chance to see the facility and research their heritage.

We'll be back again during our next visit!
