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

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 Family History Library center is larger.  THE OGDEN REGIONAL FAMILY HISTORY CENTER HAS A DUAL MISSION:
(1) to assist patrons to prepare names of ancestors for temple ordinances and
(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.

We have over 300 staff members, each of whom can help to make your visit profitable. These include computer experts, internet research specialists, others who specialize in research methods involving books, microform records, CD-ROM disks, education specialists to help you acquire skills in use of all current tools and methods for acquiring and using family history data; a knowledgeable staff to help with procedural problems on acquiring and processing names for temple work–plus many others who possess skills in using modern techniques required to prepare multimedia family history presentations.
