Welcome to Heritage Quest Research Library!

HQRL front door
  Heritage Quest Research Library is a nonprofit genealogy library, a 501(c)(3), in Sumner, Washington, managed and staffed entirely by volunteers. HQRL's collection includes books (over 15,000 titles), and microfiche; this facility also houses a bookstore where you can purchase genealogy books, family tree forms/charts, software and supplies.
  Benefits of HQRL  membership - why pay for individual data base subscriptions at home when an HQRL membership pays for six genealogy data bases for you to access at our library.
  The Heritage Quest Research Library is in downtown Sumner, WA at 1007 Main Street or call (253) 863-1806. Our volunteers can help you get started researching your ancestors and show you genealogy forms to capture all the information. Consider taking a class with us or pay for a membership to access multiple genealogy data bases from our library computers.
We are open with reduced hours due to Covid-19.
The library is closed on Tuesday and Sunday.
We hope to see you soon!
We are closed when the Sumner School District is closed for inclement weather.

HQRL is a FamilySearch Affiliate!

This is great news for our Society and genealogy researchers!

When you come into the Heritage Quest  Research Library and use our computers to access FamilySearch.org, you will have increased access to records previously only available at a Family History Center.  Come in and see what you can find!
