As the end of the year approaches, the Springville Utah FamilySearch Center is close to celebrating its first birthday. In the past months we have helped thousands of people with their family history projects.
Have you ever wondered how to start researching your ancestors and enjoying the stories, documents and photos that others have already added to your family tree?
There are numerous ways you can get started. We have classes every month on numerous topics. The classes in November include beginner workshops in both English and Spanish, finding your Mayflower ancestors, digitizing videos, using the Family Tree and Memories mobile apps, using the Descendancy Tree Function on FamilySearch and education for LDS ward family history leaders and consultants.
The Center has state-of-the-art computers, discovery centers and many pieces of digitizing equipment. Preserve and protect your precious videos, photos, cassette tapes, scrapbooks that are in your closet gathering dust by saving them in a digital format. There is a dedicated staff that can help you accomplish your family history goals.
All of the services and use of the equipment are free of charge. Group appointments and scheduling the use of digitizing equipment can be done on our website by visiting the FamilySearch site.
Bring your family, youth group, religious class or community organization for a one of a kind experience with your ancestors. You can choose from several topics when you schedule your appointment, including the popular Family History Escape Room we have created just for you. The youth groups and college groups love the escape rooms.
So whatever your needs are, whether you are new to family history, you want to create your family tree, save your family memories, or discover the stories of your ancestors, come to the Springville FamilySearch Center for a fun, exciting and rewarding experience.
