 Los Angeles Family History Center

I think the LDS Family History Center one of the richest, yet underutilized, resources in genealogy. Southern California genealogists are very lucky to have the second-largest Family History Library in our own back yard in Santa Monica. This FHC holds about 100,000 films, with an excellent collection of materials on the British Isles. If you need a film that is not held in the FHC's permanent collection, you can rent it for a month for about $3.50.

The Santa Monica FHC is only one of many Family History Centers located in Southern California. You can find the closest FHC on the Familysearch website.

If you haven't used the resources of the Family History Center, you're probably wondering just what you can find there. An excellent online tutorial on using the Family History Center can be found on the website of the Houston Genealogical Forum, which was developed by Le Geefted One.

The LDS Family History Catalog is available online, although the online version is slightly outdated (updated 2001). When you use the version of the catalog onsite at the Family History Center, you may find entries that have been added since 2001. This may or may not make a difference in your quest for an obituary.

To encourage you to use the material available on microform through your local Family History Center, here are the index listings for the Southern California area. You'll see several listings for vital records (including death records), cemetery listings, and obituary collections.

These lists are here just to give you an example of the types of information that can be found at the Family History Library. To get complete information on these listings, and to view the various holdings under each of these categories, go the LDS Family History Online Catalog.
