Genealogy

PPLC recognizes the importance of genealogical research in our communities. Our member libraries provide vital research books, tools, and databases. All of which can be accessed at the library, or at home with your PPLC library card.

PPLC has an important partnership with the Pinellas Genealogy Society, The Pinellas Genealogy Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of genealogical research, education, and preservation of genealogical material. Many of their materials and programs can be found at the Largo Public Library, one of the largest collections of genealogical material in Florida.

Largo Public Library has been designated as the center for genealogical research for the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative.

In 2000, the library earned the Genealogy Outstanding Achievement Award from the Florida State Genealogical Society. In 2008 and 2011, the Pinellas Genealogy Society repeated that accomplishment and was recognized with the same award.  All three awards highlight the library’s outstanding collection and the Society’s support through countless volunteer hours spent teaching classes, making genealogy information available, issuing publications, and providing direct research assistance to the public.
