Dover, Delaware Stake Family History Center reopening phase 1 schedule:
We have received permission to have limited appointments in the Family History Center. Please email us at  countrymamars@gmail.com  to schedule an appointment. We will then arrange for a staff member to let you in the building. That staff member will stay in the building just outside the Family History Center room for emergency purposes. Your research needs must meet the following requirements:
1. You need to look up images that are only available on our center computers or free subscriptions. (ones that are restricted for you at home)
2. You can find the collection and information on your own - no “one-on-one” sit down help is permitted.
3. You can schedule a 2 hour block between 9am-3pm M-F at the email address listed above.
4. You must stay in the Family History Center room during the time of your visit.
5. Masks are required to be let into the building and to the center, but are not required during your stay in the center since you will be by yourself (you may bring one other family/friend).
6. When you have completed your research please advise the staff member outside the Family History Center room, so they can sanitize the room and secure the building.
Thank you for your patience.
