Where do I find a FamilySearch center?

Find a FamilySearch center near you to jumpstart your family history journey. You can find the address of a local center on our website. Updates to the locator tool are coming soon and should be available in all areas by the end of 2023.

Local volunteers at FamilySearch centers provide various services:

  • Personalized help about how to use FamilySearch and how to do family history research
  • Complementary access to computers, the internet, and premium family history websites. (Available resources vary by location)
  • Access to images of historical records that are only available in centers

Each center is unique, but all offer a space to learn more about your ancestors. Centers are in many types of buildings, such as churches and libraries.
