Join Holly T. Hansen for a morning of library classes. She has many years experience doing library research and using their collections online and in person. You will be happy with the amount of information and skills you will gain from attending these three classes.
After viewing these classes you will know how to access books online and bring them home via Inter-Library Loan. You will know about collections held by the Family History Library and LDS Church History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. Collections that come from all over the world, with many available to you online from your home computer. You do not need to have LDS relatives to benefit from these resources.
We want to be sure, when you hear the word "Utah" that you don't turn aside thinking I have no ancestors there. Utah is a melting pot for people from all over the world. The collections held by FamilySearch and the LDS History Department are staggering in their magnitude. Take time to begin learning about all that is available to you from these amazing repositories.
