Centre Resources

Collections

  • Family History Library Catalog: This centre has the ability to order any of the films and fiche available through the Family History Library Catalog.
  • (List additional collections you have such as the types of books and microfilm you have on indefinite loan; though you will not want to list every single item you have. Just give visitors to this page a general idea of your resources.)

Databases and Software

  • FHC Portal: This centre has access to the Family History Center Portal page which gives free access in the centre to premium family history software and websites that generally charge for subscriptions. (Note to FHC: Not all FHCs have access to this portal. If you do not, you will want to remove this entire bullet. If you do have access to it, just remove this text in italics.)

Hardware and Equipment

  • (Include the resources you have to help individuals do their research - computers, microfilm readers, printers, etc. )

Centre Services

Staff Research Specialties

(Include sections for any other services your centre provides. Add additional sections for those services. See the Mesa and Logan FHC pages for examples.)


Resources in the Local Area

(This section is to highlight other resources in your area that will be helpful for individuals doing research there in your location, if there are any, such as government offices, historical societies, etc.)


Links

(Include links to other websites of interest to those who visit your centre such as links to the city, county and state wiki pages where your centre is located.)


Volunteer at the Centre

There are two volunteers presently assisting at the Cardston FHC.  We are always looking individuals who are knowledgeable about family history and could assist patrons who come to the Center.  The commitment generally requires working one 4 hour shift a week, (preferably during the day at this point).
