UT, Salt Lake City 11 Days of Genealogy Research
Jun 9, 2008
|Another hobby that I have had for 30 some years is Genealogy. Will spend 11 days at the Center in Salt Lake. Hope to find something that I don't have. If interested I have another site for my Genealogy.
Take a look we might be cousins.
FROM LDS LIBRARY INTERNET SITE:
Family History Library
The Family History Library system of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provides access to the world's largest collection of genealogical records, including the names of more than 2 billion deceased people.
The library was founded in 1894 to gather genealogical records and assist Church members in tracing their family histories. The current facility was dedicated in 1985 and contains 142,000 square feet of space. The records collection features nearly 2 million rolls of microfilm; 700,000 microfiche; 280,000 books; and several unique family history databases.
Library visitors may use the massive collection of books, microfilm, and computerized records free of charge. On average, the library hosts 2,500 visitors each day.
Professional staff and trained volunteers work at the library and are available to answer questions and direct people in their search for their family roots. Use of library resources (such as computers, printers, microfilm and microfiche readers and copiers, and classes) is also free, although there is a small charge for personal materials such as paper, photocopies, and computer disks.
The library is open on Monday from 7:30 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. and Tuesday through Saturday from 7:30 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. It is closed on Sunday and certain holidays. The library is located next to the Museum of Church History & Art, at 35 North West Temple Street, Salt Lake City, Utah 84150-3400, USA.
