  • Three years ago I telephoned the Family History Center in Salt Lake City asking for assistance in researching my grandfather, a famous amateur athlete in Montreal, Canada. The young lady who fielded my call was not only polite but extremely knowledgeable. Thanks to her research skills I was able to unearth extensive sports articles that eventually led to my grandfather's admittance into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame in 2015.
  • When I went they helped me make an account and it was really cool. The staff was super nice
  • Fun place for a family to go explore for the day. On the main floor they have a really fun interactive way to get to know more about your family. If you have time during your day a really recommend visiting.
  • This is the first place I have been able to locate accurate information about my great-grandmother. Expect to spend a few hours here!
  • A fun stop on a tour of temple square. Learn about where you are from, how you are related to others and get help finding ancestors.
