COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAMS - Official FamilySearch Center (FHL)

FamilySearch CertificateNow you can get all of those important Family History Library (FHL) materials delivered direct to the SCGS Library!

Family Research Center, allows SCGS patrons to rent microfllm and microfiche through the Family History Library in Salt Lake City and have it delivered directly to SCGS for use. Resources can be reserved on an indefinite basis and kept at the SCGS Library for an extended period. It makes it doubly convenient to order films for delivery to SCGS. Don't fight the traffic, or limited hours, or parking and go for convenience.

In 2009, the SCGS Library received its designation as an official FamilySearch Center in association with the Utah-based non-profit corporation, FamilySearch. This benefit allows patrons to order microfilm and fiche for their use at the SCGS Family Research Library.

HERE'S WHAT TO DO:

  • Go to FamilySearch.org
  • Set up an account with FamilySearch.org.
  • Place an online order for the films you want
  • Pay online and your films will be delivered to the SCGS Library.
Approximately: Film, short term loan: $ 8.34, Film, extended loan: $20.86, Fiche, $8.16
Please note that film prices do not reflect state & local taxes & shipping fees; these additional fees will be added to your LDS cart as part of your final order.
