WHAT'S NEW  

Las Vegas FamilySearch Library Reopens                                         July 2015

 

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.  Come and work on your family history with us and see the changes in person.

Library To Be Closed for Upgrades                        June 2015      

The Las Vegas FamilySearch Library will be upgrading its facilities soon, as follows: 

  • 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.

  • The cabling for the computers will be redone.  In addition to new cabling, we will set up a second closet so that the space between the computers and the cable connection will be shorter.  This should give us better response times.

  • The kitchen will be remodeled to give us a little less kitchen and a little more meeting room space for our shift devotionals.

  • The classroom by the kitchen door will be changed to face the opposite way to reduce distraction for class participants.

The job has been bid, and a bid has been accepted by the Church.  We are happy that all the work can be completed at the same time so that we only close once.  The closure dates will be Monday June 1 through Sunday July 19.  The Library will be open again on Monday, July 20 at 9 am.

New Training Format for Learning Family  Tree-HANDS ON           March 2015

 

We are starting new classes on Family Tree using a hands on approach.  These classes will be done in the lab with each student working on their own computer on their own line.  Parts of the classes will work in a training Family Tree for practice to help you gain confidence without concern for making a mess out of Family Tree.  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.
