Discovery Your Family History

Nevada Family History & Genealogy Centers

Although most people consider Las Vegas as a huge playground for grown-ups, the state of Nevada just happens to be the home to two-and-a-half million citizens – most of which would love to find out more on their beginnings. Nevada residents can now locate their family history easily and accurately. For those of you that would like to assemble their family trees with a productive genealogical search, the Nevada family history centers offer the alternative. A majority of these centers are offshoots of the local Family History Library situated in Salt Lake City. Similar to the library, a lot of these centers are managed by the Nevada LDS Family Search, yet resources inside are available for the public at no cost. All of these centers are the excellent place to initiate your search from olden times & assemble your family tree.
