Without following the usual procedures of those tracing family roots, the Museum has a great deal of information about families who have lived in the Frostburg area. Voting registration prior to World War I;tax assessments from 1910; a tailor's measurements from the first part of the century... items not found on the Internet.

Additional genealogy resources in the Downstairs Meeting RoomCard files, vertical files (mostly newspaper clippings),and correspondence with family members are cross-indexed, and City maps of various vintage help to locate the houses where people lived.
