Where can I find genealogy information in the Reno/Sparks area?
The Reno Family History Center is a branch of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. The Center provides access to most of the microfilms and microfiche in the Family History Library to help patrons identify their ancestors as well as subscription databases, print materials, and trained volunteers to assist in your research.


The Downtown Reno branch holds limited resources that may be useful for genealogy research. These include local city directories and telephone books, clipping files, and a complete collection of Reno newspapers on microfilm. Please contact us for guidance on your specific need.
