Familysearch Center

FamilySearch Center

The perfect place to get started on family history.

The FamilySearch Center has a relaxed atmosphere and offers a valuable experience for people who are just starting their family history.  The center is free and located on the lobby level of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building, on the east side of Temple Square.

Staff can help you locate your ancestors’ records online, and you can learn about the impact that records and record-keeping have made throughout the ages as you browse the Records of Our Lives exhibits. Have your photo taken in front of a backdrop of the wharf at Ellis Island with the Statue of Liberty in the harbor. The FamilySearch Center is also the home of the interactive FamilySearch Discovery Center, for information click here.
