Provo Utah Bonneville Family History CenterEdit This Page

From FamilySearch Wiki

FamilySearch This article describes the services and resources available at a Family History Center, a branch facility of the Family History Library.


      The Provo Utah Bonneville Family History Center is located in the southeast portion of our stake center. The parking lot can be entered from 1000 East in back of the church building. You can see a small porch with a metal overhang on the south side of the building. The door is a cream color with a textured surface.

      There are eight computers, a printer, a scanner, two microfilm readers, and a microfiche reader available for use.  The center has a collection of films and fiche in a permanent collection.  Films and fiche can also be ordered through FamilySearch Online ordering.

       On the desktop of each computer there is a list of permanent microfilms, several genealogy programs, and links to FamilySearch portal, and FamilySearch. The portal carries links to several genealogy sites which normally you would have to pay to use, such as Ancestry.com.

Our friendly and experienced staff is ready to help you find your ancestors.
