The Public Library Albuquerque and Bernalillo County is a FamilySearch Affiliate Library. FamilySearch.org is the world's largest non-profit database of genealogical records. As an Affiliate Library, we are able to provide access at all of our branches from our public computers to millions of restricted digital images that will not be accessible to you from home. By contract with some of their information providers, FamilySearch does not have rights to share all images with Affiliate Libraries. You will need to create your own free account in order to view records on FamilySearch.
