Our Genealogy Library is located in the Dupont Building at Fort Ethan Allen, Colchester Vermont. We are handicapped accessible and located in the rear of the building.
The library has a growing collection of reference books, manuscripts, periodicals and microfiche. We continue to purchase published "repertoires" of church records pertaining to marriages, baptisms and burials.

There are 7 computers with free access to major genealogy databases including Ancestry.com. Volunteers will help guide your research into many ethnic groups.
A wide array of genealogy classes and lectures are held at the library. Visit our website to see the current schedule at www.vt-fcgs.org
Members may use our library any time it is open for research. Visitors may use our library one time without any cost. Non-members may use our library for a fee of $5.00 a day. A membership is $30 per year with $6 added for each family member who wishes to join.

Tuesdays from 3pm until 9:30pm and Saturdays from 10am until 4pm with the exception of holiday weekends. Check our website for special summer hours.
