The Marlborough District Libraries have a variety of books to help you with your family research. These include books on how to do individual family research as well as books on local history and some local family histories.
Some of the material is in the non-fiction area and may be borrowed and some is in our Local History section, which is for use in the library only.
We also subscribe to Ancestry.com. This database can only be used in the library. Ancestry's historical record collection reflects our multicultural heritage and enables members to explore their family’s history using local and international records including the convict and free settler lists, passenger lists, Australian and New Zealand electoral rolls and military records, English, Welsh and Scottish censuses, birth, marriage and death records as well as user-contributed family trees, and by connecting to millions of other members making their own discoveries.
Books relating to family history material can be found in a variety of places within the library including:
||New Zealand provincial histories
||Marlborough History Reference Collection
