The Center for Family History and Genealogy was organized by faculty at Brigham Young University (BYU) in the year 2000. BYU offers a B.A. degree in Family History and Genealogy. The program is one of the oldest, most developed, and internationally-diverse educational experiences available to the world of genealogists. The Center’s mission statement is to “Utilize BYU resources to simplify the finding of ancestors and the discovery of the world in which they lived; and support the training of students for life-long temple and family history service.”
The Center’s first Director was Raymond S. Wright III, Ph.D., AG, with Gerald Haslam, Ph.D., AG, as Associate Director, and Kathy Driggs as Secretary. The Center’s current Director is George Ryskamp, J.D., AG, with Kip Sperry, M.L.S., AG, CG as Associate Director, and Lu Knudson as the Administrative Services Supervisor.
BYU’s Harold B. Lee Library houses the largest LDS Family History Center in the world. It is also only 45 miles from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. In addition, the Center has a specialized genealogical computer lab on campus.
