Nevada Genealogy & LDS Family History Centers

While most people think of Las Vegas as a big playground for adults, the state of Nevada is also home to two-and-a-half million residents - many of which would like to learn more about their origins. For those who want to construct their family trees with an efficient genealogical hunt, the Nevada family history centers provide the solution. These centers are offshoots of the nearby Family History Library located in Salt Lake City. Like the library, centers are run by the Nevada LDS church, but resources inside are available to the general public at no charge. These centers are the perfect place to begin your search of the past and build your family tree.
