Center Resources[edit | edit source]

The center provides free access to several subscription family history websites, including Ancestry, FindMyPast, MyHeritage,, Fold3, and ArkivDigital.

Due to copyright restrictions, many records in FamilySearch can be viewed in a Family History Center that cannot be viewed elsewhere.

We always have two staff members on duty to assist patrons.
