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

Our center is small, but growing. We have three computers and will be growing to six computers very soon. Each computer has access to subscription websites and wi-fi for patrons who would like to bring a laptop and receive help. We also have two microfilms readers with a digital camera to preserve your research records. Our hours are currently limited but will also be increasing as staff becomes fully trained. Currently we have knowledgeable research staff in the following countries: Germany, Poland, Hungary, Scandinavia, and the United States.
