Where can I find an affiliate library?

Hundreds of FamilySearch affiliate libraries are helping extend FamilySearch’s services to millions of patrons worldwide. Affiliate libraries have access to FamilySearch’s digital genealogical collections that are otherwise accessible only through a FamilySearch center.

Local affiliate libraries can be a public or higher education library, archive, museum, cultural center, or genealogical or historical society.
