Family History Library Reviews & Ratings

  • The Family History Library is a genealogical dream. There are so many resources, domestic and international, I was floored. Not only are the staff/volunteers knowledgeable but the staff are from all over the world so if you are lucky enough to be researching a country with a local volunteer you have a huge advantage. We spent five hours with a woman from Poland who helped us patiently through multiple resources in Polish.

  • I have been to the Family History Library on several occasions and found the Librarians to be knowledgeable, helpful, kind, attentive, resourceful, experienced, and excellent teachers. There is no end to their tenacity when it comes to difficult finds and knotty family trees. Their patience and kindness is truly remarkable. I have never been there at a time when there aren't ample computers available and help at the ready. I have made leaps and bounds in my family tree thanks to this remarkable place. My single complaint is that I wish the Library was open on Sundays.

  • Incredible resource. Not everything one needs can be found searching online. There are many records that are only available through their system or via a book. Great place to do your genealogical research. The staff is helpful too.

  • I had such a wonderful experience during my visit... the staff, who are all mostly volunteers, was so incredible, very helpful and so friendly! The resources are amazing I highly recommend it to everyone!

  • Experts are available for many languages and countries! Lots of records and services for patrons.
