“They leave no stone unturned”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The Mormons are obsessed with connecting everyone with their ancestors. They think it sheds a light on who you are, where you came from and what makes you the person you are. They believe that we will all be reunited with our families in the after life so it might be a good idea to know who they are. Be prepared to do some work yourself. Come prepared with as much information about your family with date of birth, places etc. Be prepared to spend many hours if you come from an area of the world where records have not been computerized.

“One Stop Genealogical Information”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I have been to the FHC many times over the years researching my family history (I am not LDS). It is simply the best source of information you can find anywhere. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and most helpful.

“Frequent visitor; never disappointed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

My favorite thing to do is to browse the books that are so well organized by geographic area. Many of the books are not widely available, in fact some are rare. Some are even (replicas) of hand-typed family genealogies. Could spend a month there! People that work there are super-helpful. They are actually too nice - they need to tell people to take their cellphone calls OUTSIDE!!!

“Family Search really helps”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

When you go there you get to see a film about how the center works. There are people everywhere to help you as you are searching for family.
