FamilySearch This article describes the services and resources available at a Family History Center, a branch facility of the Family History Library.

The Provo Utah Bonneville Family History Center is located at 156 S 1000 E, in the southeast corner of the stake center. Our main entrance is through the double glass doors facing east. We have our own parking lot with plenty of spaces, so come on over!

Several subscription websites are available on our computers including Ancestry, fold3, Access Newspaper Archives, ArkivDigital, Find My Past, Puzzilla premium services, and many others (see below). Many digitized records from the FHL Catalog with limited access can be viewed in our center. If you see a camera with a key symbol in the catalog, you can probably view it at our center.

We also have a microform viewing room including a collection of microfilm and microfiche. Any film or fiche ordered for extended loan before the FHL discontinued film and fiche rental, is still in our collection. You can also bring your own microfilm or fiche to view on our readers. We have a camera mount and digital camera for capturing digital images of your microfilm or fiche.

We are continually expanding our hours, so check back often to see when we are open.  Our friendly and experienced staff is ready to help you find your ancestors!
