Family History Centres are found throughout the world and are privately funded by the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints.
The Family History Centre provides access to the largest collection of free family history, family tree, and genealogy records in the world. It also provides research guidance, forms, and an opportunity to preserve and share your family history.
A list of materials available are on the website. Some materials are on-site and are card indexed. Off-site materials can be acquired on inter-library loan for a small fee. We have several sources for Irish research.
Materials at the Centre are available free of charge to the public. There is a fee for copy services and ordering microfilms and microfiche from the main Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. Some family history forms are available for pennies a copy. We are not a lending library.
We have two voluntary staff on duty.
There are washroom facilities, free parking, no stairs to climb and area to eat lunch if you bring one from home. Library rules are posted on the bulletin board as you enter and include: please maintain a quiet atmosphere; smoking is not permitted in the building or on the church grounds; and no food and drinks are permitted in the library.
