FamilySearch[edit | edit source]

FamilySearch is an approach to organizing and recording your family history (genealogy) online. It has powerful tools for data accuracy, usability, and collaboration. It is a way to work together to do family history. FamilySearch development is ongoing and aggressive, so you can expect frequent updates, including additional training materials. FamilySearch is intended to become the most accurate representation of an ancestral line.

Groups and Youth Groups[edit | edit source]

We always look forward to working with Youth Groups!

Please call the center to make an appointment for your group prior to your visit.

Prior to coming, please make sure all youth already have their Church account to use for Indexing or to access FamilySearch. Please click on the following link for more information Church Account Registration
