Very clean and professional , the service and functionality of the equipment is better than most apple stores. Great place to look into your ancestry and family history if you are OK with giving some personal info to strangers.

A great resource for anyone doing research. You can see all of the original materials and print them for a nominal cost. The staff is super friendly and helpful.

Family Search Center is a nice place to go and talk to people about lots of things going on in the world today. The center has a tour you may take and the people are so friendly. Make sure you have at least one hour.

Expert genealogists or new comers to the hobby, you will find warm, helpful, and knowledgeable help the minute you walk through the doors. Don't worry you don't have to be a member of the Mormon faith and, it's FREE!
