Where do I find a family history center?

On the FamilySearch website, you can find the address of a family history center. Family history centers provide various services to help you discover your family:

  • Help to use FamlySearch.org and other websites and computer tools for family history.
  • Help with family history research.
  • Free access to family history websites that normally require subscription fees.
  • Access to some of the restricted, digitized microfilms on FamilySearch.

Steps (website)

  1. Go to the following site: https://www.familysearch.org/help/fhcenters/locations.
  2. In the Search box, enter your location, and click Search.
  3. Select a center from the list that appears.
  4. Look for green FamilySearch tree icons on the map. Click an icon. You can see the name of the center, the address, hours of operation, and telephone number.

Steps (mobile app)

For the Family Tree app:

  1. On an iOS device, in the bottom-right corner of the app, tap More. On an Android device, in the top left, tap the 3 lines icon.

  4. Tap Find a Family History Center.
  5. A map of your current location appears. You can tap on any of the green dots on the map to see more information about that particular Family History Center. If you want to search for a different location, enter the location into the search bar at the bottom of the map.
