HeritageQuest® Online New Interface

On March 4, HeritageQuest® Online’s interface will automatically be getting a new look!

The new interface, powered by Ancestry, will result in a number of updates that will make the product easier to use.

How can you prepare?

Go about your research as usual. The switch to the new version of HeritageQuest Online will occur on March 4 and will be automatic. And, all existing authentication methods will remain in place and intact.

This interface will have a similar look and feel! From the user-friendly home page to cool and helpful features such as new Research Aids and interactive Census Maps, it’s a whole new, refreshing experience.

Stay informed. Visit for more details about the upcoming conversion and the new content being added.

Check out the upcoming training schedule and register for a class.

We’re excited about the upcoming changes and hope you are, too!
