Patrons who visit our family history centers often check the FamilySearch website to determine what hours and resources are available in the family history center of their choice. Family history center directors can keep this information current by updating the information in the Church Directory of Organization and Leaders (CDOL).
If the family history center is closing for a few days or a few months, or if the hours of operation change, center directors need to update their center information by going to this website, http://cdol.lds.org. Here family history center directors can view the information about their family history center.
For family history center directors to gain access to their center information, the directors’ LDS Account user name and password are required. This is the same user name and password that they use at other Church websites (new.familysearch.org, familysearch.org, lds.org).
The center director may correct or update the hours the center is open and add any additional information, such as classes or special events. This information will be pulled over to FamilySearch within 24 hours.
If family history center directors have problems accessing this website, they should contact their support office. Patrons will appreciate correct information that is updated and current and will give them an idea of what resources and events are available at their chosen family history center.
