genealogy eResources

The Zelienople Area Public Library has a multitude of genealogy resources at your service. So much so that it needs its own webpage to list them all. That page can be found here:

To paint a quick picture of offerings however, it’s good to know that ZAPL provides access to Library Edition, has a Genealogy club that meets monthly, and that we work with many local partners like the Zelienople Historical Society and Historic Harmony, Inc. to bring the community a vast resource bank for those exploring history and family histories.
