Church groups, families, and other groups are welcome to visit the Brigham City Family History Center. If you would like to bring a group, please contact us in advance so that we can make sure there is adequate staff and resources available to support your group and its objectives.
To schedule a visit, call the center at 435-723-5995 or contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Youth groups are asked to provide one adult for each five youth. Adults accompanying youth groups should prepare to actively participate with their youth. For example: if the youth will participate in Indexing, then each adult in the group should be registered and have some experience with Indexing before the visit. Local temple and family history consultants are an excellent resource to bring with your group and will provide continuity after your visit.
Preparation for your Visit:
LDS Account Login: Each LDS member of the group needs to have an LDS Account before coming to the Library. Please have them sign in to familysearch.org or lds.org to make sure their username and password is working. Please make sure they bring their username and password with them.
LDS Account Registration: For members who don’t have a current account, have them register for one prior to your visit. They can do this by going to ldsaccount.lds.org and clicking on Register for an LDS Account below the Sign In button. Enter the necessary information, which includes their Membership Record Number (MRN) and birth date. Their MRN may be on their temple recommend or can be provided by their ward clerk. Youth 8-12 years old (under 13) will also need permission from a parent and the parent's MRN. To activate a new account, an email address is needed.
Personal Family History Information: Except for Indexing visits, please have everyone attempt to create a personal pedigree chart with as much family information as possible.
Specific Goal or Objective to Accomplish: Each group should have an idea or goal, before they arrive, of what they would like to accomplish during the visit to the library.
Some microfilms may be available to view at various Family History Centers.

The Brigham City Family History Center offers recording sessions for video histories.
Family history interviews are a good way to capture memories before they are lost. Besides verifying names, dates and places, these interviews are also one of the best ways to preserve a wealth of stories, testimonies, thoughts, and feelings. Written or oral histories are valuable family keepsakes but video histories are even more priceless as they preserve not only a person’s memories and stories but make it possible to see the person as they share their stories and memories.
- One person can record themselves reading or verbalizing their memories or histories.
- One person can interview others (such as a parent or grandparent) while recording their responses.
- Two or more people can record a conversation or share memories with each other (such as siblings sharing memories of an ancestor.)
Recording sessions may be up to two hours and will be saved to a DVD. There is a $2 media fee for each DVD. Additional copies for other family may also be made for $2 each. Lists of possible interview questions are available.
For more information or to reserve a time call 435-723-5995 or 435-723-6338.
