A guide to help genealogy researchers find and use the resources available at Whittier College

About Genealogy Research

We are happy to assist you with finding and using the Whittier Area Genealogical Society (WAGS) materials housed in our collection. 

However, if you are looking to start your genealogy research or require in-depth research assistance, please contact the appropriate Leadership Team member.

WAGS Collection

There are over 2,000 volumes in the WAGS collection.  They are located on the shelves in the northwest corner of the first floor.

All materials are LIBRARY USE ONLY and may not leave the building.  You may peruse the books and/or make copies using the coin operated copy machine.
