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

                                                          Our Mission Statement
The purpose of the Moab Family History Center is to assist Moab community members and visitors in researching their family trees through access to genealogical resources, classes, and workshops.

We're here to help.  Trained volunteer genealogists/family history consultants can help you with your research, and it's available to you free of charge.  Research consultants can help you by answering basic questions such as how to get started, what records are available to search, and suggesting sources for your research.  We are a free community resource for anyone interested in learning how to research their family tree.
