Wikipedia - Family History Center (LDS Church) Family History Centers (FHCs) are units of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). In 2009, there were more than 4,500 FHCs in 88 countries. The centers supply resources for research and study of genealogy and family history. Family History Centers vary greatly in size, hours staffed, and resources available.[1] Because of changing demographics, many smaller FHCs are closing with their resources being directed into "Library Class" facilities similar to the Los Angeles Family History Library, but not like the Riverton FamilySearch Center that has computers only.[2] Most smaller FHCs cannot order microfilm and microfiches from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City (these do not circulate, but are used only in the FHC using FHC machines).
