Some have different names, and so the term FamilySearch Center is used to refer to all of them, collectively. Most are still individually called Family History Centers. The large centers, previously called multi-stake or regional centers, are now called FamilySearch Libraries, but are still included in the umbrella term "FamilySearch Center."
