Center Services

Staff Research Specialties

Our FHC is staffed by local volunteers who can help get you started with family history research. They can guide you in using FHC resources and equipment. If you're planning a visit to our center to begin your genealogy, write down what you know about the family you wish to research -- names, dates, and places -- and choose a research goal. This will help our volunteers to best assist you. Please call to calendar group visits in advance.

Online film/fiche ordering is currently available in our area! You are now able to search the FamilySearch Catalog found at FamilySearch.org AND place your order online from home at:
