The Family History Library Is Now the FamilySearch Library

The Family History Library on Temple Square in Salt Lake City is now known as the FamilySearch Library. Also, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ 5,700-plus family history centers around the world are now FamilySearch centers.

These subtle changes are a reminder of the many important — and free — genealogical resources available in each of these buildings.

Family is central to the Church of Jesus Christ — and to God’s plan of happiness. We invite you to visit the FamilySearch Library or a local FamilySearch center to discover your roots and how your ancestors have shaped you. You’ll find personalized help and access to technology and exclusive records.

Visit the FamilySearch Library website for hours of operation and a FamilySearch center near you.
