Do you know the difference? Do you know that BOTH are important to your family history? The Church History Library focuses on the history of the church as a whole, whereas the Family History Library focuses on multigenerational families and individuals. The reason that you would want to use the Church History Library is that you can learn about the history of the time period of your ancestors. This additional information puts "meat" on the bones of your family history dates. Did you know that the Church History Library has the most complete listing of Mormon pioneer emigrants and companies who traveled to Utah from 1847-1868? See for yourself at www.mormontrail.lds.org. You will be surprised at what you can find! Of course, the Church History Library has much more than this one database! Check it out! Below is an example of what I found for my ancestor, Amelia Evans.
