I saw this last night on FamilySearch – Family History Centers – FamilySearch November 26, 2019: https://www.familysearch.org/blog/en/family-history-center/. A lot more information than I included below.
At FamilySearch, we’re doing everything we can to make all the tools and resources we have available to us also available to you—from your computer or even your phone! With so much information and access literally a screen tap away, you may question why people would visit a local family history center.
On the other hand, maybe you’ve never even heard of a family history center and are wondering what one is. Either way, you’re in luck. This article is about to tell you!
What is a Family History Center?
Family history centers are branches of FamilySearch and the Family History Library. They provide resources for research and study of genealogy and family history.
A typical family history center offers you:
- A computer or device to use as you search for ancestors.
- One-on-one support from a real person when you have questions or get stuck.
- Special access to genealogical websites that may not be available to you from your home.
