Heritage Quest Research Library

The HQRLibrary is temporarily CLOSED

  Due to our concern for our Patrons and our Volunteers regarding the Corona Virus (Covid-19) we will be closed from March 14, 2020 to July 6, 2020 We will re-evaluate the situation at that time. We thank you for your patronage and support and will see you soon!
  In the meantime, there are links at hqrl.com to genealogy resources and members have remote access to Ancestry.com ALE, look for the link under members at left. Check out Jo-Anne's update on our Blog, or click on Forums to join the conversation. 

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 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and open 10am-8pm on Wednesdays.
The library is closed on 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!
