Research at the Family History Center

Most genealogists are keenly aware of the enormous resources available at LDS Family History Centers operated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Many registrants for the International Convention of Germans from Russia coming to Casper next week (July 28-August 3) will be making their way from the Parkway Plaza Hotel and Convention Center – the convention headquarters – to the Casper Family History Center to do a bit of research.

Thanks to Mary McQuade and Pam Martin, both of Casper, for the photos. The are facilitators for the sessions of Genealogical Research at the Family History Center slated for Tuesday and Wednesday (July 29-30). Since participation is limited, persons interested in going to the FHC should check at the convention registration desk to sign up.

Sessions will be from 9:30-11:00 a.m. and 1:30-4:00 p.m. both days.

The FHC has available microfilms that were ordered by individuals ahead of time; the have five film readers, two microfiche readers and five computers with on-line capability. Photocopies from the many research books at the center are 5¢ for each page -- 25¢ for copies from films; of course, they have a range of research materials on hand.

The Family History Center is located at 3931 West 45th Street in the Wolf Creek subdivision. Here are
