The archive is one of the free research databases offered through the library. This database contains historical documents and personal histories from National Archives and other institutions.

Then in the afternoon, Rice will lead smaller one-on-one and small group sessions with various genealogy searches that can go more in-depth. Those sessions will take place from 1 to 2 p.m. and 3 to 4 p.m.
