We are delighted to offer once again a week's research at the Family History Library with help from professional genealogists. The Library will initially be opening between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm Mondays through Fridays. It is hoped and expected that there will be longer opening hours in September but we cannot guarantee this.
Whilst the Library considers that the situation with regard to the virus has improved sufficiently to allow the facility to reopen to the public, safety protocols are likely to remain in place.
Those who are particularly anxious about attending our September event may wish to delay attending until a future time. We are hoping to run a number of further trips in the coming twelve months
These notes reflect our understanding of current guidelines and policies but we recognize that they are subject to change.
You will spend a week at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, the largest library of its kind in the world, offering a staggering collection of genealogical records from all over the world on five floors.
Help is offered exclusively for our guests by Ancestor Seekers consultants at regular intervals. Our experts will help you find the records you need, thus providing a more productive and enjoyable experience. (This is in addition to the help available from the Library staff and volunteers).
Our consultants will be available every day to offer specialized help as you search records from the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Germany.
There is a large collection of records available from many other parts of the world which the friendly and helpful library staff will be pleased to help you with.
Located next door to the Library, the Salt Lake City Plaza Hotel at Temple Square is the ideal location for those coming to Salt Lake City to do genealogy.
