The Church History Library

There is a contrast between a visit to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah and the nearby Church History Library. But it for those members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints whose families have been member for some time, the Church History Library is also a valuable source of family history information. But you don't have to visit the Church History Library in person to take advantage of its vast resources. Many of the historical and family history important documents are being digitized and put online.

Two webpages you should visit are the Library's Digital Collections and Online Resources. You will be surprised at the wealth of information available. Another valuable page is the External Research Databases page.

It is easy to become overwhelmed with the number of online resources, but it is also important to start looking and searching.
