Consolidated FHCenters in Salt Lake

NOTE from DearMYRTLE: The following was just received from our friends at FamilySearch. Please address all inquiries to

New Riverton FamilySearch Library Open House

Patrons in Salt Lake County will soon have another state-of-the-art genealogy facility. FamilySearch has consolidated the resources of 24 family history centers to provide enhanced patron experiences. The new Riverton FamilySearch Library will service residents on the south end of Salt Lake County. Patrons will enjoy extended hours, greater research assistance, and access to significant genealogical resources. The public open house is scheduled for June 17–19, 2010. The library is located on the main floor of the Church-owned Riverton Office Building at 3740 West Market Center Drive (13400 S. Bangerter Highway).

Open house activities will include ongoing orientations, a video tour of the famous Granite Mountain Records Vault, opportunities to explore FamilySearch’s newest products and services, and hands-on demonstrations of the process and technologies used to digitally preserve and publish historic records online. There will also be fun family history–related activities for children 8+ years of age.

Please share this information with any family or friends who live within the service area of this new genealogy facility. Encourage them to explore these new resources available to them.
