You don't need to be a committed genealogist to get a lot out of visiting this free facility. Even a general interest visit to research your own family background will most likely offer quick results. Better to do a bit of Google research first, obviously, but the library has huge on-site resources (two floors for British Isles alone) and allows you to search/research through a raft of normally subscription or academic-restricted web sites. Very helpful volunteers (termed 'missionaries', but they won't do the hard sell) will point you in the right direction then leave you to it. Watch out, though - a half day, a whole day, or even several days will quite easily disappear once you get hooked on this!
