The Chelmsford Library recently became a FamilySearch affiliate library, which means patrons interested in genealogy have greater and more convenient access to the wealth of resources available through FamilySearch.org.
FamilySearch is the world’s largest repository of free genealogical records, based in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. It has amassed billions of birth, marriage, death, census, land, and court records of genealogical significance from over 130 countries.
You can search the Family History Library Catalog online at FamilySearch.org to see available records and to order microfilm. There is a nominal fee of $7.50 to order a microfilm, which is then sent to the Chelmsford Library. Once the film arrives, patrons use the Chelmsford Library’s microfilm reader to view it.
More genealogy research tools are available on the library’s website. If you have any questions about FamilySearch or researching your family tree, please contact the Reference Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-256-5521 x211.
