San Diego California FamilySearch Library/What to Bring
Preparing for a Visit to the San Diego Family History Center
Place any records (birth/death certificates, etc.) along with names, dates, places you are aware of or have found into a box. Organize them by family surname, dates, or places. You may choose to bring a notebook with this information or actually bring the box.
We recommend you enter the knowledge you have gathered into a Genealogical Software of your choice. An easy one to learn is Personal Ancestral File (PAF).
Decide what you would like to achieve and then bring any information you already have with you. Please check the hours we are open.
Complete and bring your Pedigree Chart, Family Group Sheets or your PAF (or other genealogical program) backup file on a floppy disk, CD or flash drive (memory stick) for transporting information back and forth to the Family History Center.
