''The Ogden Regional Family History Center located near the center of Ogden Utah is the second largest of the 4600 plus Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Family History Centers. Only the Salt Lake&nbsp;Family History Library center is larger.&nbsp;'' <br>

==== THE OGDEN REGIONAL FAMILY HISTORY CENTER HAS A DUAL MISSION: <br>(1) to assist patrons to prepare names of ancestors for temple ordinances and <br>(2) to help assemble information from which biographies of ancestors can be written. Church authorities stress the importance of both of these activities in blessing our lives and the lives of our posterity.  ====
