Central Library of Rochester & Monroe County

Local History & Genealogy

The Local History & Genealogy Division is located on the 2nd floor of the Rundel Library Building. This Division holds the largest collection of primary and secondary source materials about the history of Rochester and the Genesee Valley in the region, as well as a vast assemblage of resources to help you research your family history. Materials do not circulate; they must be used in the division.

Our division is currently closed, but we continue to offer email service for brief reference questions:
