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

The Camarillo California Family History Center is dedicated to providing education and support for the family history community in the the eastern Ventura county area and is centrally located in Camarillo near the 101 Freeway and the Camarillo City Offices. We are open to help search for YOUR ancestors and have staff willing to guide your search. We have access to many databases to search online and have microfilm readers to view films from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City for a nominal charge.
