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

At the Palos Verdes California Family History Center we believe that knowing our ancestors, helps us know who we are.  We want our patrons to have a positive experience when they visit.  Our consultants have experience in researching North America, Mexico, Scotland, Denmark, and England to name a few countries. If we don't know about a country, we'll do our best to learn about it with our patrons.
