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


The center was largely closed for much of 2015 and part of 2016 due to not having a director or consultants available. This has changed since July 2016! We are a small center but our staff is gradually expanding and are eager to help you with your family history.
