First FamilySearch Center Opens Outside Utah

MR says: This is family history like you've never seen it before! With fun, interactive software and activities, you can really become immersed in family history.

The Church also recently broke ground for a unique family history library to open in Saint George. 

FamilySearch International announces the grand opening of its Seattle Family Discovery Center, the first to open outside its headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Visitors to the center are provided with a tablet computer as a personal guide to interface with large touch screens, where they learn more about themselves, view family origins, and discover how ancestors may have lived and even dressed.

Data used for the interactive experiences is drawn from online data at FamilySearch.org and select partners. The center creates a “Museum of You” feeling through a variety of experiences and activities for children, five interactive station experiences, and software applications that explore family ancestral lines in fun, creative ways to help patrons discover famous relatives.
