Revision as of 09:28, 30 March 2015

The Greensboro Family History Center is committed to assisting with the researching and recording of family information in the Greensboro NC area. Our goal is to help instill into the hearts of our visitors a love for Family History. We hope that in some small way we may help you draw closer to your Ancestors as you learn who they are. Through your research the names on your pedigree chart will come to life as real people who faced real challenges. We hope you will discover more about yourself in the process.
