As a FamilySearch affiliate library, TCGHS researchers have onsite access to more than two billion digitized records, including 400 million images that are not currently available to the public outside an affiliate library or a FamilySearch family history center.
While anyone can access the basic FamilySearch collection from their own home computers, the additional 400 million images that will are available are a great addition to the resources TCGHS can offer you at our library.
If you are unable to visit in person, our society offers a wide array of Research Services. If none of those help you, you can always drop our research staff a note about your needs for an estimate of cost.
The Library is open to all researchers. There are no membership or age requirements. No admission fee is charged although we do appreciate donations (we receive no government funding). And, of course, you are always welcome to join the society!
We do charge a small fee for each page copied or printed in the library.
You can bring paper, pens/pencils, laptops and other mobile computing devices, research notes, and a camera. We ask you to leave all coats and briefcases in the main research area before going into the stacks.
Please do not make notes in any of our sources! If you find something you think is in error, please advise our librarian.
Please ask staff before photographing collection items. Drinks are allowed but please be cautious. Water & soda are available for a small donation.
Smoking is not allowed anywhere in the library, including restrooms!!
We recommend emailing the society with any questions you have. Our webmaster will make sure your message gets to the person best suited to answer your question.
You are also welcome to call the society but be aware that all our librarians are volunteers whose knowledge and background vary widely. The individual you speak to may or may not be able to answer your question immediately.
Our monthly meetings are always open to the public. Our monthly meetings are usually held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm at the library. The meeting begins with a one hour presentation followed by a short business meeting.
There are no membership or age requirements. No admission fee is charged although we do appreciate donations (we receive no government funding). And, of course, you are always welcome to join the society!
