What is Family History
What to Expect
The FamilySearch Center will get you set up with the right online resources, accounts, and the right knowledge so you can have more success learning about your family history, whether you’re at home or on the go.
Rooms for group instruction are available. We have a private classroom so you can bring your Women’s group, Church group, Civic group, or others for a fun time learning and collaborating together.
The research specialists are also very skilled at helping you set trackable goals and help you make plans on how to accomplish them.
We promise that as you learn about your ancestors, you will be blessed with a sense of fulfillment and understanding of who you are. Family history work has a refining, spiritualizing, and tempering influence on those who are engaged in it.
How Does FamilySearch Work?
The FamilySearch Center is run entirely based on you! Volunteers from around the globe contribute billions of photos, documents, and family trees to form FamilySearch. Schedule a class, come take a tour and support a great family cause!
