The Family History Department is excited to tell you about an amazing resource for genealogists along the Wasatch Front—the BYU Family History Library. Located in the Harold B. Lee Library on the Brigham Young University campus (on the north end of the second floor), the library has a friendly and knowledgeable staff of 138 missionaries and volunteers who are ready to help you with your family history and genealogy research.
