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

Our center is located in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints church building. Closest access is through the north parking lot entrance.  Our center has 3 PC's with free access to several premium research sites such as Ancestry.com.  We have microfilm readers with imaging/printing capability.  We maintain limited microfilm/fische that primarily cover surrounding areas.  Additional film can be borrowed on-line from the extensive collection of the FamilySearch Catalog (links near the bottom of this page).  On-line film loans will result in the microfilm being sent to our center and held there for your use during open hours.
