Abstract NoteGenealogy is one of the most popular and fastest growing hobbies among Americans today. Experts give several reasons for this surge of interest in family history, among them Alex Haley's Roots and the easy access to genealogical information provided by the Internet. Ethnic groups especially have begun to delve into their heritage. In an attempt to better serve their patron's needs, libraries have developed genealogical collections that range from small to extensive. Librarians are also beginning to adopt the Internet as an addition to the genealogical materials they have in print The Internet provides a wealth of genealogical information, from passenger lists of the immigrants who came through Ellis Island to millions of vital records compiled by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. As the interest in genealogy continues to grow, librarians will continue to develop and add to their genealogy collections in order to meet the demands of patrons seeking to discover their family history.
