Commonly referred to as the LDS Family History Library, it is the largest genealogical library in the world containing more than 250,000 volumes, nearly 2 million reels of microfilm, and more than 350,000 microfiche. The Library is equipped with numerous microfilm and microfiche readers and printers as well as photocopiers. The Library also has computers with a variety of resources on compact disk. The Library does not maintain a web page, but further information is available on a number of unofficial web pages via Cyndi's List of Genealogy Sites on the Internet, LDS & Family History Centers. The Library has also established an online catalog.
The Library maintains a system of branch libraries referred to as family history centers (FHCs). Each LDS family history center has a copy of the Ancestral file, International genealogical index, and other comprehensive indexes useful in genealogical research. Each FHC also has a copy of the LDS Family History Library catalog on compact disk and on microfiche. The catalog can be used to identify microfilmed and microfiched materials which can be requested via interlibrary loan for use at the family history centers. To find the address of the LDS family history center near you, check one or more of the lists of LDS FHCs online via Cyndi's List of Genealogy Sites on the Internet, LDS & Family History Centers. Since these lists are often incomplete you might want to also check your local telephone directory under Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. LDS family history centers are staffed by volunteers and usually open a limited number of hours so it is best to call ahead to determine the hours as well as the exact location of the FHC in your area.
