Tuesday, June 24, 2008

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) -- Dedicated family researchers in the Kansas City area now have a library to match their ambitions.

The new Midwest Genealogy Center is billed as one the nation's largest libraries specifically for people tracing their ancestors. The 50,000 square foot building replaces a smaller facility housed in the Mid-Continent Public Library's north Independence branch.

The genealogy library is expected to attract researchers from throughout the country.
