Center Services

We encourage visitors to bring their own digital cameras for copying images from microfilm or microfiche, so you have your own digital record that you can take home.

Patrons may bring their own laptops for note-taking or entering information into personal genealogical programs, with the disclaimer that the owner is responsible for the security of the device. Wireless internet is currently available i the building, although there may be days when availability is limited due to high usage or updating.

If you make an appointment in advance (other than our regular Wednesday evening hours), you will get at least an hour one-on-one with an experienced family history researcher.
