  • The Family History Center is an absolute must. The staff at the center is kind and patient with helping you locate your family roots. It's an extremely well-organized operation and the facility is beautiful. The free Family Search app has helped me digitize our entire family's genealogy, so I am so grateful for this service. Pro Tip: - Download the "Family Search" app to continue genealogical exploration. You can even upload family photos to your virtual family tree!

  • Exceptional facilities and loads of people who don't think genealogy is a waste of time. All staff and volunteers exceptionally friendly and capable -- if they don't know something, they go find out. My computer's behavior baffled one long-time volunteer and we had the IT guys at my station in under three minutes! If you don't have your own portable computer, they have, literally, hundreds. Most of their collections are available on line at FamilySearch but there are some things only available on site, due to copyright restrictions. Even if you don't strictly "need" to go to the library, it's an education in genealogy -free.

  • So helpful, I feel guilty that they're free. This organization deserves all the help and support it can get, even from non-LDS such as myself. Very helpful staff with plenty of resources.

  • Three years ago I telephoned the Family History Center in Salt Lake City asking for assistance in researching my grandfather, a famous amateur athlete in Montreal, Canada. The young lady who fielded my call was not only polite but extremely knowledgeable. Thanks to her research skills I was able to unearth extensive sports articles that eventually led to my grandfather's admittance into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame in 2015.

  • Exhibit on the first floor is amazing! I highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning about their family roots!
