We have some exciting news! On March 4th your HeritageQuest Online will be transitioning to a new interface, powered by Ancestry.

The new interface will provide users with an enhanced, more efficient search experience. Additionally, the transition will result in several new content enhancements that we think you will like!
Summary of key changes

methods will remain in place and intact, including
static IP address, referring URL, barcode, and
embedded username and password.
