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

Our center is located in the Church of Jesus Christ of LDS building.  Closest access is through the north parking lot entrance.  Our center has 3 PC's with free access to several premium research sites such as Ancestry.com.  We have microfilm readers with imaging/printing capability.  We maintain limited microfilm/fische that primarily cover surrounding areas.  Additional film can be borrowed on-line from the extensive collection of the FamilySearch Catalog (links near the bottom of this page).  On-line film loans will result in the microfilm being sent to our center and held there for your use during open hours.
