Menlo Park California Family History Center

The Menlo Park Family History Center is located in the small house just behind the LDS Church. We have an exceptional collection of books, film, and fiche focusing on British Isles, Germany and USA. There are also records available for other parts of the world and access to borrow films/fiche from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. We have 10 computers, 8 microfilm readers, and 1 machine that will copy film/fiche to print or digital format. But our most valuable resource is the dedicated and knowledgeable volunteer staff who provide one-on-one help to patrons.
