Heritage Quest Online States S to Z

The web page for HeritageQuest Online became too big and unwieldy. It was difficult to edit. Therefore, the page has been divided into several smaller pages. This page lists all the libraries known to have HeritageQuest Online remote access in the states of South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

South Carolina

South Dakota

You may need a login & password to access from home; contact your library for more information.


  • Utah Library Card holders. - Premium PIONEER Databases - A service of the Utah State Library & your local public library. http://pioneer.utah.gov/
    All of the Premium PIONEER Databases can be accessed from any Utah public library & all but a few from your home; how you get into the databases depends on where you live and who (which library) is offering access. If you live in Davis County, Murray, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Weber County or Uintah County, the databases are accessed through their servers using library card barcodes. All other areas of the state need to request an access code from their local public library.


  • The Vermont Online Library (VOL) at http://www.vtonlinelib.org/ provides access to many databases, including HQ, licensed by the State of Vermont. See their website for list of libraries. Contact your local library/institution, if listed, for a card and access method/password. While not all libraries in Vermont have HQ access, you may be able to obtain a library card from another library. If you do not pay taxes in a particular town, you will be charged out of town fees, usually  based on the per capita resident tax support. Fees can vary widely from one town to another and are paid annually. See the individual library sites for details.  (an example below)
