Record Management Programs

Google Research

Free Research Websites

The staff are receiving hands on training for family trees which will replace new famly search in the near future. Patrons are invited to come in for an introduction lesson. 

We always strive to have enough staff so that each patron who comes in can have one-on-one help.
