Castle and Bonnie Nishimoto have been called as the new directors of the Las Vegas Family Search Library. Bonnie (Lee) is no stranger to the Library and we welcome her leadership. Castle (Cas) has brought some wonderful administrative skills to help direct the activities of the library. Welcome.
On Monday July 20, 2015 the library reopened with the new lift, changes to the upstairs computer lab, changes to the kitchen, a new phone system, widened doors, new upstairs carpeting, upgraded computer networking and cabling, and automatic lights in the bathrooms.

A lift will be installed, which will enable all patrons and workers to get to our second level where we have a classroom, special collections library, and chapel.

Then we will help guide you to work within your family tree to add, fix and source your ancestors.
Each month the Las Vegas FamilySearch Library invites special guest instructors to teach classes like "Breaking Down Brick Walls", "Mining the Census", "Immigration & Naturalization Records", "Researching English, European and Scandinavian Records", "Understanding DNA", and "Using Google as a Research Tool." These vary from month to month. Check out our class schedule to see what is available for the current month.
