Research your family history from home


At Frankston City Libraries, we're excited to be able to bring you access to Find My Past and Ancestry Library Edition in a different way, allowing you to continue your genealogy research from home. 

Normally, you would need to come into the library to gain access to these exceptional family history platforms free of charge, but while we're closed, the creators of each have provided FREE home access for our members. 


Find My Past

Trace your ancestry and build a family tree by researching extensive birth records, census data, obituaries and more with Find My Past.
