About the Collection The Ogden Farmers' Library has amassed an extensive collection of genealogy and local history materials for use by the public. Most materials in our collection are reference and must be used in the library. Reference items are designated in the catalog and on the spine of the book with a lower case "r." Most items are cataloged and entered in the Monroe County Library System (MCLS) catalog, although we have a small selection of materials not cataloged. A microfilm reader/printer is available for use in the reference section of the library. A list of microfilm holdings is available for download below.
Uncataloged Resources List - Materials available at Ogden that are not cataloged are listed here and arranged by topic. The Dewey Decimal number or location of each item is also listed to help you find the materials in the library. More detailed lists of OFL's microfilm holdings and genealogy CDs have also been compiled.
Historical Images Collection - Learn about the photo collection housed by the Town of Ogden. Since 2003, many of the images from this collection have been used in the Pathways to the Past walking tour in the Village of Spencerport.
Online Indexes - Volunteers associated with our library have created indexes for some of our genealogy materials. Links to these items have been posted on the MCLS Genealogy Indexes page. Copies of the records are available for $10.00 per item, and may be obtained by writing to:
Ogden Farmers' Library Genealogy & Local History 269 Ogden Center Rd Spencerport, NY 14559
Online Databases - The library subscribes to Ancestry.com and Heritage Quest. Ancestry.com must be used in the library, but Heritage Quest is available for use from home by those users who have a valid MCLS card.
