Explore the New Family History Library Website


The Family History Library in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, just launched its new Family History Library webpage. As the brick-and-mortar flagship of FamilySearch International, the library offers much that is available on FamilySearch.org. But the library also has unique resources that are featured on the new Family History Library webpage along with access to library records.

The webpage allows for real-time library updates to information about operation hours, special events, library news, and new and expanded services. Among those services, patrons worldwide can schedule 20-minutes appointments for free personal online research consultations with family history experts, a service that is available in multiple languages.

The Family History Library is currently closed due to the worldwide pandemic, but through the website, worldwide guests can participate in discovering their heritage and families. The website is currently available in German, Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Chinese. Japanese and Italian will be added soon.

When pandemic conditions allow, the library will again host a variety of in-person experiences, such as one-on-one help in-person at the library, heritage and discovery experiences, and more. Meanwhile, many such experiences can be accessed through the website.
