Geneology

The FamilySearch Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, hosted the monthly meeting of Sun City’s Ancestor Hunters Genealogy Club.  Members were treated to a lesson on how to find records about their ancestors on Ancestry.com.  The lesson was followed by free time for individual hands-on research using the free access to Ancestry.com and computers available at the FamilySearch Center.

Participants received assistance from the instructor and Center staff as they sought data about their predecessors.  Many found immigration records, census records, and other vital statistic records that enhanced the information known about the lives and the times of their ancestors.

The Mesquite FamilySearch Center is located at 100 North Arrowhead Lane and is open to anyone interested in learning more about their family history.  The goal of the Center is to provide resources to help you in the research and study of your genealogy and family history by:
