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

The Hurricane Utah Family History Center is located in downtown Hurricane just off State Street. We serve the areas of Hurricane, La Verkin, Toquerville, all the way to Zion's National Park.  We have almost 60 volunteers who are trained to help visiting patrons surf the highways of the Internet to find their kindred dead and organize their information in one of the software programs available.
