Discontinuation of AncestryPlus

Dear GALILEO Users,

As announced earlier this summer, Gale’s AncestryPlus will be removed from
GALILEO menus on September 1, 2005. This change reflects the decision by
Ancestry to distribute its resources through a new vendor.  ProQuest
Information and Learning is now the distributor for the Ancestry resources.

ProQuest has extended access to Ancestry Library Edition to the academic
libraries as a result of the public libraries’ subscription.  Ancestry
Library Edition  was placed on public and academic library GALILEO menus on
July 1st.  Access to Ancestry Library Edition is restricted to
on-campus/library use only.

There are only minor differences between the information available in
Gale’s AncestryPlus and ProQuest’s Ancestry Library Edition.

The following Gale proprietary content will no longer be available in
Ancestry Library Edition:

Biography and Genealogy Master Index
PILI Passenger and Immigration List Index
315 City Directories

The following new immigration information will be included in ProQuest’s
Ancestry Library Edition:

New York Passenger Lists, 1851-1891
Wuerttemberg Emigration Index – late 18th century to 1900
The Great Migration Index – 1620-1633
San Francisco Passenger Lists
New York Petitions for Naturalization – 1792 – 1906
