Q: What is the difference between the individual and library versions of GenealogyBank? Tom, On your blog of Apr 20, 2009, you mention that GenealogyBank has added Cincinnati newspapers. How long does it take for the records to be added to the library version of GenealogyBank – America’s GenealogyBank? I found several articles of interest by searching on the direct links in your blog, but the Cincinnati newspapers are not listed on the library version of GenealogyBank I normally use. Thanks.Rebecca C.
A: Good question Rebecca. GenealogyBank (individual version) and America’s GenealogyBank (library version) are two separate online services.
GenealogyBank is available by membership directly to individuals. America’s GenealogyBank is available by subscription only by libraries. While they are similar – they are not the same service. Titles added to GenealogyBank do not always go into AGB. For example there are over 3,800 newspaper titles in GenealogyBank and approximately 2,200 in America’s GenealogyBank.Each library has the option to add-on additional content and expand their AGB coverage beyond the core set of newspapers.
