Family History Library (FHL)

The world’s largest genealogical information collection, founded in 1894 by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The main branch is in Salt Lake City, Utah, but many of the library’s microfilmed records can be loaned for use at one of its 3,700 worldwide Family History Centers. The FHL’s FamilySearch Web site contains the Social Security Death Index, the Military Index, the Ancestral File and the International Genealogical Index, plus searchable census data from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
