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


The Brigham City Utah Family History Center is located in the lower level of the meetinghouse which it shares with the Brigham City 7th and River Wards. We serve the southern part of Box Elder County including the communities of Brigham City, Mantua, Honeyville, Bear River City, Corinne, Perry, and Willard. We have about 80 volunteers who are trained to assist patrons. Anyone interested in genealogy and family history is invited to come to the Center for assistance, to research, or to attend one of our classes.

Volunteer at the Center

Volunteers are needed at the Center. If you have computer experience and an interest in family history, we would love to have you join our staff. Serving at the Center is a great way to increase your computer and family history skills. Those who help others always learn the most themselves.

We have four-hour daytime shifts and three-hour evening shifts. To volunteer, please call the center at 723-5995 or email us at ut_brighamcity@ldsmail.net
