Not many public libraries have the extensive online genealogical collection that is offered by the Denver Public Library, and their site may serve as an inspiration and model to those who seek to work on such an endeavor. First-time visitors may wish to start by looking through the "Browse Collection" area. Here they can look at genealogical documents culled from the Library's extensive holdings, learn about the history of Denver's neighborhoods, and view historic maps of Colorado and other Western states. Moving on, the "Research Tools" area brings together a wide range of research tools for those persons looking into family history, Colorado vital records, and Colorado newspapers. Some of the resources are limited to those persons with a Denver Public Library card, but many are accessible to the general public. Finally, visitors can also sign up to receive their in-house newsletter which reports on their latest finding aids, books, and digital collections.
