- The Archive Center & Genealogy Department of the Indian River County Main Library is a designated LDS Family History Center. To order, you must register and pay at the following website: www.familysearch.org/films. Be sure to select the correct library that you want the films sent. You can either rent a roll for three months, or make it an indefinite loan where it will stay at our library permanently.
The library can order on loan from other libraries materials it does not own. We use the following resources for ordering materials:
Mid-Continent Public Library, Independence, Missouri - The only "genealogy" library in the U.S. that lends their duplicate books. All catalogs are available and located at the librarian's desk. The cost is the price of postage. It takes about 2-4 weeks for your order to arrive.
National Genealogical Society book collection located at the St. Louis Public Library.
Library of Congress - Family Histories prior to 1900 have been microfilmed and are available on inter-library loan. The charge is the cost of postage only. There are some family histories after 1900 that have been included. You must use the book Genealogies in the Library of Congress since 1986. Check the index in Part III "Genealogies Converted to Microfilm." The only drawback of this service is the time it takes for it to arrive. It varies anywhere from four weeks to 3 months.
Archives of Ontario - Vital, church, land and court records are available free of charge from the archives. Use the Interloan catalog that is located on the shelves next to the front desk.
And many other resources.
It is recommended that everyone check the East Central Florida Genealogical Society Co-op for family histories in the nine counties of central Florida. The books are not available on loan but you can request photocopies from the individual libraries. Over 1600 family histories are located at the Indian River County Main Library.
