About Our Center

The Wilmette Family History Center is the oldest branch of Salt Lake City’s Family History Library in the Chicago area. It’s staffed by volunteers and open to the public free of charge.

Patrons visit our center to view films they’ve ordered from FamilySearch’s extensive Family History Library catalog, to view films that are at the center including a large collection of Chicago and Cook County films, to use our computers to access premium sites like Ancestry.com and Fold3.com at no charge, and to ask our volunteer consultants for help using Family History Center resources.

Volunteering at the Family History Center

Our center is staffed entirely by volunteers, some from local congregations of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and some from the community. If you have an interest in family history research and can spare a few hours a month, we could use your help! Please email our director if you’re interested in learning more.
