The Family History Library of
The library is located in a 142,000 square-foot building in Salt Lake City, and anyone tracing his or her ancestors will want to make use of the collections, which fall into four broad categories:
One of the main purposes of this Genealogy at a Glance publication is to assist you with strategies for researching in any of the major collections, strategies that you’ll find not only helpful but indispensable. At the same time, however, you’ll learn not to leave home before checking online, since you can access the library’s circulating collection of over 2.4 million microfilms at any of the 4,500 FamilySearch Centers located in over 100 countries.
Like other publications in the Genealogy at a Glance series, this one takes a large subject and narrows it down to its essential elements, covering the basics of research in an amazing four pages. But this piece is just a little different; besides pointing out the best and most helpful websites, listing the most useful books and articles, and providing tips for further research, it also tells you how to prepare for a research trip to Salt Lake City and suggests things to do in the city when you take a break from your research. It even offers suggestions for dining and accommodation!
