Orange County FamilySearch Library

Our annual Orange County Family History Fair is a fun and informative event where you can learn from some of the top people in the genealogical world. This event draws several hundred participants every year. Our instructors have presented at regional, national and international genealogical events—these are the same caliber of class you might find at RootsTech, NGS or FGS, but so much closer to home!

Welcome to the Orange County FamilySearch Library! We are an extension of the world famous Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah and one of 15 such regional genealogy libraries located throughout the western United States.
Why come to our library? We have thousands of films, books, classes and other resources you cannot get at home, as well as free access to many premium genealogy websites. Plus we have friendly staff to answer questions!
Think of us as your tour guide to more than two billion names of deceased people and records from more than 100 countries, covering everything from 14th century English church records to African oral histories.

Best of all, access to the Orange County FamilySearch Library is free! The Library is located at rear of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, at 674 South Yorba Street, in the City of Orange, California. Entrance is from the parking lot in the back.
