About Our Center

The Wilmette Family History Center is the oldest and largest 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 from FamilySearch’s extensive Family History Library catalog  including our large on-premises collection of 10,000 films including  our complete Chicago and Cook County collection, to use our computers to access premium sites like Ancestry.com, ProQuest, and Fold3.com at no charge, and to ask our volunteer consultants for help using Family History Center resources and to get started with family genealogy.

Our Family History Center is equipped with a new Microfilm/Microfiche reader/scanner/printer. You can now capture images on a thumb drive as well as print them or send them to yourself via email.
