We always look forward to working with Ward Youth Groups!

Please call the center to make an appointment for your group prior to your visit.

Prior to coming, please make sure all youth already have their LDS account to use for Indexing or to access FamilySearch. Please click on the following link for more information LDS Account Registration

If your youth group is coming for help with FamilySearch please have them bring information on at least one of their deceased ancestors to research.

Also, the Riverton Family History Center can train very large groups at the same time. Please click on the following link to schedule a time with them. Riverton FHC Group Visits
