General Information

 

 

Family History Centers (FHC's) are units of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City UT and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS Church). In 2009, there were over 4500 FHC's in 88 countries. The centers are resources for research and study of genealogy and family history.

 

The smallest FHC's are targeted toward people living within the boundaries of individual local Wards and Branches.  Strakes and Districts may house a FHC for their constituent Wards/Branches, or may share a facility with multiple Stakes/Districts in their area. Regional FHC's are usually "Library Class" facilities designated as true branch libraries of the Salt Lake City Family History Library (FHL).  FHC's with established hours of operation are open to members of the LDS Church and the general public.

 

Family History Centers offer a wealth of research materials to help individuals trace their family heritage.  Research Center hours vary, so you should always call before visiting to ensure the center will be open during your visit.

 

Most smaller FHC's cannot order microfilm and microfiches directly from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. The centers that do not order films, are usually located close to others that do. As of February 2012, the charge for ordering a film was $7.50 (local and state taxes additional).

 

Various geographic areas are converting to online ordering of microfilm, and this should be completed by 2013 in North America.   When a FHC is on the online system, it will no longer order films for researchers.  Researchers must then use either an LDS account or a FamilySearch account to order their own microfilms via the Internet.

 

Most of the larger Family History Centers provide some type of free access to a number of online subscription databases, e.g., Ancestry.com.  Mid-range FHCs may have small local book collections.
