BEFORE PATRONS VISIT THE FAMILY HISTORY LIBRARY

The Family History Library in Salt Lake CIty has one of the largest collections of genealogical records in the world, but not all of the films listed in the FHLCatalog are housed in the library because of space limitations. Copies of the most films for the US, Canada, Britain, Germany, and Scandinavia are available in the library. However, copies of many films from other parts of the world must be ordered by library staff from the Granite Mountain Records Vault or the Salt Lake Distribution Center when needed by patrons. If a copy of a film must be ordered, it may not be available at the library for a day or two.

A patron who plans to visit the FHL in Salt Lake should search the FHLCatlog in advance at a Family History Center or at www.familysearch.org to determine if the films are in the library. The patrons can then send a letter or an e-mail to the library, preferably four weeks before the visit, listing the films needed in the priority order. Library staff can verify which films are available in the library and which need to be ordered. The request should include the patron's telephone number or e-mail address.

Requests should be sent to:

Family History Library Library Attendant Supervisor
35 North West Temple
Salt Lake City, UT 84150-3400
E-mail address: fhl@ldschurch.org
