Records available at the Family History Centre

Updated: Tuesday, July 26, 2011   |   Belper Historical & Genealogical Website

This is a list of the films of Parish Registers and other records available on film from the LDS (Family History Centres).

 

What Is a Family History Centre?

Family history centres are facilities sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that provide research support for people interested in identifying their ancestors. These centres also provide local access to microfilmed family history records and, where available, Church family history computer programs.

Family history centres are usually in local Latter-day Saint meetinghouses and are staffed by volunteers. Centres are available worldwide. A list of centre locations is available from the Family History Library or on the Internet. The list on the Internet also provides the centre's hours of operation.

You can order microfilms and microfiche through your nearest Family History Centre. You can also use the microfilms, books, and other items at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

How Do I Order Microfilms and Microfiche from the Family History Library?

To order microfilms and microfiche from the Family History Library, you must go to a family history centre. The staff there can help you place the order.

Before you visit the centre, you should identify the films you want to order and either print the full records or the microfilm or microfiche numbers.

There is a nominal fee charged for ordering microfilms and microfiche. The staff will be able to tell you how much it is.

Note: Books listed in the Family History Library Catalog cannot be sent to family history centres unless they are also on microfilm. You can request that a book be microfilmed. (Ask a staff member at the centre for help.) However, microfilming a book may take several months if the library has to obtain copyright permission to do so. It may be faster to try to obtain the book elsewhere, such as a public library or from the publisher.

Before ordering microfilms or microfiche, please check the "Notes" field on the Title Details screen. Any restrictions on the use of the item will be recorded there.
