About Memphis Public Library & Information Center’s Genealogy Department
The microfilm and print genealogy materials available at the Memphis Public Library & Information Center enable individuals to research family history, and trace the movements of relatives, especially in the southeastern United States. The collection includes more than 20,000 genealogy books. The History Department staff, with assistance from local volunteers, has collected and indexed Shelby county marriage, death, probate, church, cemetery, and funeral home records to aide research.
