Doing your family history is a life changing experience. Everyone wants to know where they came from. Learning about your ancestors can bring perspective and understanding to your own life. In what seems like the blink of an eye, you'll learn basic information about your ancestors that you never knew.
At our Family History Center, you will have access to basic research tips, techniques and databases that contain millions and millions of records. You will be able to search numerous subscription websites, containing zillions of records, all provided at no charge in order to help you trace your roots. Dedicated researchers stand ready to introduce you to TechTips, Ancestry.com, FamilySearch, and FamilySearch Wiki, to mention only a few. There are many more, all designed to assist you on your family history journey.
Researching is a skill, like playing a musical instrument or lowering your golf score. It comes from experience, study and practice. We're excited to help you discover, "who's your daddy, your great granddaddy", or anyone else you'd like to find. You'll be glad you did!
