There is no question that the LDS Church has established the largest and most important genealogical library system in the world. Since 1938 they have been microfiliming national and local, civil and religious records asll over the world. The master copies of these are protected from the elements and natural disasters in deep vaults carved out of the granite mountains near Salt Lake City, Utah.

Exciting developments are taking place at FamilySearch involving a complete overhaul of the online system together with increased facilities and the Family History Centres.

The enormous geleaogical collection available on New FamilySearch and at the Family History Centres is a veritable goldmine. This book helps you understand and effectively utilize the facilities and holdings of the LDS Church.
