L.A. Family History Library: A much-anticipated reopening

The Los Angeles Family History Library celebrated a much-anticipated reopening on Nov. 8. Refurbished for the first time since its official opening in 1965, the once-named Los Angeles Family History Center is California's most comprehensive genealogical library and is one of the largest family-search resource centers in the world.

Recognized as one of the flagship facilities for Church family history, the upgraded facility underwent extensive renovation and electronic upgrades in anticipation of its reopening. The new complex is housed in the same building as the refurbished LDS visitors center located on Temple Hill just off the 405 Freeway, boasted by some, as the busiest freeway in America. It is the second major LDS family history resource to reflect the new emphasis on digital access and training spaces. (The first was in Riverton, Utah, opened in June 2010.)
