If you want to be part of the popular ancestry search trend, look no further than the local library. The Lake Agassiz Regional Library (LARL) is now a FamilySearch Affiliate Library, which means it has access to more genealogy resources to help people make more family discoveries. FamilySearch is a world leader in family history.
There are only a few hundred affiliate libraries in the country. The designation means library customers will have greater and more convenient access to the wealth of genealogical resources available through FamilySearch. The popular web service has over 6 billion searchable names and 2 billion images of historical genealogical records—and you get the helpful assistance of library staff.
FamilySearch adds over 300 million free genealogical records and images online yearly from all over the world and manages the famous Family History Library in Salt Lake City. It has amassed billions of birth, marriage, death, census, land and court records from more than 130 countries to help you discover and make family connections.
To access FamilySearch, Lake Agassiz Regional Library cardholders can visit www.larl.org/research/genealogy. A free account may be required to access parts of the site and as a FamilySearch affiliate library, additional records are available within LARL locations.
FamilySearch is the largest genealogy organization in the world. FamilySearch is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Millions of people use FamilySearch records, resources, and services to learn more about their family history.
To help in this great pursuit, FamilySearch and its predecessors have been actively gathering, preserving, and sharing genealogical records worldwide for over 100 years. Patrons may access FamilySearch services and resources for free at www.FamilySearch.org or through more than 5,000 family history centers in 129 countries, including the main Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.
