The Greensboro Family History Center is committed to assisting with the researching and recording of family information for the Greensboro NC area. Our goal is to help instill into the hearts of the visitors of the Center or browsers of this website a love for Family History. We hope that in some small way we may help you draw closer to your Ancestors as you learn who they were. Through your research the names on your pedigree chart will come to life as real people who faced real life challenges and you will discover more about yourself in the process.
