Want to know more about your ancestors? Where did they come from and when? Visit the Family History Library, where you can delve into two million rolls of microfilmed records. Discover a feeling of belonging and history as you explore your family tree.

Don't be afraid of tackling your history alone–experienced guides and genealogists will help you in your search, and it's available to you free of charge.

The Family History Library of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has the world's largest collection of genealogical information. In 1894 the Church founded the Genealogical Society of Utah to gather records that help people trace their ancestry. As new methods of preserving records are discovered, the library is able to store more and more information.

Today the library has records of more than 2 billion names in data bases; 2.4 million rolls of microfilm; and 278,000 books. With the help of more than 4000 family history centers (branches) in 88 countries, the Family History Library is constantly expanding its prized collection of  records.

So if you've been wondering about your family history, come on in! You won't know who you are related to until you look.

If you're new to genealogy, visit the FamilySearch Center located in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building for an introduction and orientation.
