Il Centro FamilySearch recentemente rinnovato è ora aperto
The FamilySearch Center located at 501 S. Ninth Street, Las Vegas, NV is pleased to announce that it is now open for use. The Center recently completed a significant remodel, both internally and externally, under the direction of the Area Presidency. On October 14 and 15, 2023 there was an Open House for the public to tour the new facility as well as a rededication of the building.
During the Open House the center hosted media, church members, friends, neighbors, and community leaders with interactive tours. These tours showcased the redesign of the 1932 revival-style Tudor chapel as well as the free services and equipment that are offered to the public.
The Center has been transformed into a “Discovery Center” with many new features and tools to assist in working on family history and genealogy. “Its purpose is to offer engaging free services that help visitors make fun personal and family connections and discoveries, and to digitally preserve and share their family memories,” center officials said.
The new center features a computer lab with 47 computers and 10 interactive discovery stations for visitors of all ages and groups interested in learning more about their family heritage. A play area for small children is also available for parents.
The free center also provides equipment for people who want to convert old photos, slides, negatives, 8mm film, VHS videos, books and other heirlooms to digital form. The center recommends bringing a portable memory drive to store new digital files.
Those involved in the remodel of the Center hope that it will be a gathering place for our entire community. Click here for more information about the facility including hours of operation: https://churchofjesuschristinlasvegas.org/familysearch/
