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

We are a full service Family History Center.  If you have a computer at home we can show you how to use that computer to research the web for family information. While much of the information available is being indexed to make it easier to find, there is still a lot of information that is available only on microfilm. Some microfilm may be available to search through here at the center.
