DearMYRTLE's Column: Determining Book Lists for Family History Centers

===> Click on this link to listen to the podcast

Ol' Myrt here knows you want to have something on the shelf when that gentleman comes in and says "My name is Jones, and I hear the Mormon Library has my family history. I'd like to pick up a copy this afternoon!" Your primary responsibility is to function as a satellite of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, assisting patrons in borrowing microfilm/fiche from the larger main library facility. You have also been provided with at least one computer and PAF Personal Ancestral File, so that patrons without computers can computerize their ancestors by name, date, locality and family relationship. In the case of your LDS Church members, you will encourage them to follow through by attending the temple. Most of the FHCs outside Utah have thousands more non-members using the facilities, and we're thankful to realize we're all part of the family of man. Isn't it wonderful that genealogists so willingly share information they have gained to help the next person? Although it isn't necessary, FHC volunteers do tend to get involved in the research process with regular patrons of our centers. It should be foremost in our minds that our researchers are to become the experts on their families -- we just point them in the right direction. It is incumbent upon each patron to learn how to do research to prove his/her own family relationships.
