The Carnegie History Center’s Genealogy collection is a vast and broad resource to assist in your research. For the United States, books will be arranged by State, then County, then by topic. New location labels are at the top of the spine for easier viewing. The Dewey call numbers will remain on some books until they need to be removed.

For questions or concerns, contact Rachael Altman (Medders).
