While the library does not have a subscription to a genealogy database, the following web resources are a starting point for anyone interested in researching their family history. Many offer a limited trial subscription. The Washington State Archives is another great resource for local history and includes sources such as birth, death and marriage records, military records, housing and land records, etc. You may also call the Cheney branch to set up an appointment with the archivist. Other local resources include the Spokane Public Library's Northwest Room and their genealogy library located on the 2nd floor. Local universities such as Gonzaga, Eastern Washington University, and Whitworth have their own archives with various historical records available. Please ask at the desk for additional resources.
