Montgomery County Genealogical Society

About the Library

The Jane C. Sween Research Library and Special Collections is located at the Beall-Dawson Historical Park in Rockville. Named in honor of its first librarian, Jane C. Sween, the Library supports Montgomery History’s mission to collect, preserve, interpret and share the  history of all Montgomery County’s residents by providing resources and research support related to local history and genealogy.
The Library continues to increase the resources that can be searched remotely and also the Librarian Sarah Hedlund serves as the Archivist for the County. You can find a tutorial and links to searchable databases HERE.

The Library is now open and scheduling research appointments!  Request an appointment and review reading room guidelines to get started today!

They also still accept remote research requests. Please contact the Librarian/Archivist
