Have You Visited a Family History Center Near You?

Have you ever visited a Family History Center that is run by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (sometimes referred to as "Mormons"? I'll bet that if you haven't, you don't know what you are missing! The Family History Centers can provide very valuable information to you. You don't have to be a member of the LDS church to go there either.

As you can see from this screenshot of the FHC desktop, there are three broad categories of help at a Family History Center. The first one is Genealogical Resources. There are premium programs that are offered at the FHC. These are subscription sites such as, FindMyPast, Fold3, and others. These sites and others like them are available for you to use at no charge. The second category is Classes and Workshops. The FHC has access to over 300 classes and workshops that can be shown anytime. The third category is One-on-One Assistance. There are volunteers that are willing and able to help you with YOUR research. Imagine having someone to help you every step of the way. Pretty cool!
There are over 4000 Family History Centers in the world, including more than 80 in other countries. Want to find a center near you? Click here for help. If you are even the least bit curious about your family, come visit a Family History Center.
