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.
