FamilySearch Family Discovery Center - New in Salt Lake City

Do you consider yourself a novice when it comes to your family history? Want to know more? Then here is your opportunity!  Then experience your family in a whole new way!


                                                                   I did! 


I recently had an opportunity to explore the new FamilySearch Discovery Center located in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in Salt Lake City. It wasn't your "normal", old-fashioned pedigree chart. It was a delightful EXPERIENCE.


It brings your ancestors to life with interactive displays and fun and exciting things to do. Bring your children or grandchildren along with you and let them experience their ancestors. Share your stories with them and let them watch time f.l.y by. 


A simple phone call to reserve a time is all you need. Make sure you have a FamilySearch account and bring your login and password with you. When it's your turn, step into the past and take control of experienced iPad you borrow, then follow the numbers.



Move though the various experiences at your leisure. 


Where are your ancestors from?








Bring a flash drive with you and record your own story.


Review your entire story and email it to yourself. It's that simple!


And don't forget to stop by the Family History Center before you leave. Or take a short walk through Temple Square and cross the street to the FamilySearch Research Library and delve into the historic details of your ancestors lives!
