Are you new to genealogy and family history? Do you have an interest in these but don’t know where to begin? Maybe you’re a seasoned researcher looking for that hard-to-find piece of information? Or perhaps you’re looking to rekindle a project that’s been on hold. Whatever your level of experience, we welcome you to visit CPL-Lyons to break through brick walls, connect with other family history and genealogy researchers, and explore the many resources available in our collections and online.
The Lyons Branch Library is a designated FamilySearch Center. Patrons have access to digital images not available outside of a family history center or affiliate library. FamilySearch has the largest genealogy collection in the world and they continually add new records.
The Clinton Public Library Historic Newspaper Project was undertaken in 2014 to digitize the corpus of defunct newspapers from the Lyons and Clinton communities from 1856-1927. Using microfilm currently housed at the CPL-Lyons facility, Advantage Preservation created and currently hosts the fully digitized materials on a searchable website. The project was made possible by a grant from the State Historical Society of Iowa’s Historic Resource Development Program.
