Colorado Genealogy & LDS Family History Centers

Family roots are important to many Colorado residents today, but few know how to use the many resources at their disposal to create an efficient and accurate family tree. Fortunately, help is available through Colorado family history centers across the state. These research centers are actually branches of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, and they are operated by the Colorado LDS Church. However, the facilities are open to the general public as well, and most of the research and resources are available at no charge. This Colorado source is an excellent way to trace your genealogy back as far as you like.
