Local History and Genealogy ~ FamilySearch Center

Welcome to the Springvale Library FamilySearch Center!

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has certified Springvale Public Library as a FamilySearch Center.  This allows researchers to request microfilm and microfiche materials from the Family History Center of the Mormon Church which has an extensive library of genealogy research materials.  All film and fiche ordering is now done online by the person requesting the item.  Films and fiche are sent to the Springvale Library to be used in house.
  • Create an account or log in at
  • Make sure that you have chosen Springvale Library as your default Family History Center.
  • Search for microfilm or fiche on the Family History Library Catalog
  • Check the "View Film" record to see if there are any restrictions
  • When you have found the correct item, order it and pay either by credit card or Paypal.
  • FamilySearch will email you when the film is ready for you to use at the Springvale Library.  You must have an email address to complete the order.
  • Priority is given to the person who orders the film but film may be used by anyone while it is on loan and information about films that are currently in-house will be posted.
  • If you need to use the film longer, sign in to your account to renew the item.
  • The Springvale Library will send the film back so it will arrive at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah by its due date.
  • Microfilm and fiche materials borrowed from the Family History Center are fully copyrighted and copyright law restricting their use applies to researchers
