Our research library has grown tremendously over the last few years and we have many resources for researching local history and genealogy. These include church records and histories, ministerial records, printed family histories and a database of over 15,000 names. There are newspaper and will abstracts, early tax and census records, township and county histories. Although we concentrate on information from Albany and neighboring townships, we have many church records from throughout Berks County as well as historical reference books from Berks and surrounding areas.
VISITING THE LIBRARY
We encourage anyone who is interested in local history to visit the ATHS library. The library is open by appointment and we can easily accommodate your schedule, including evenings and weekends.
