The Tye Preston Memorial Library is a Family Search Affiliate Library.  The Family History Library in Salt Lake no longer lends microfilm.  Their goal is to digitize as many records as possible and make the information available online.  Due to various restrictions imposed by the copyright holder, some records are not available at home but can be accessed at a Family Search Affiliate Library.  When you click on a record you will get that message.  You can use the Library’s computers or bring in a laptop.


The Genealogy Club of Canyon Lake

The Genealogy Club of Canyon Lake meets at the library at 1 pm on the second Tuesday of each month. Members share stories, get tips to help overcome brick walls, and learn about topics such as courthouse research and DNA. Everyone is welcome.
