The BYU Family History Library (FHL) is located in the Harold B. Lee Library (HBLL) on the campus of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. It is the largest branch Family History Center of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City.

It was formerly known as the Utah Valley Regional Family History Center (UVRFHC).

Besides having a large permanent collection of microfilms, and access to the entire Family History Library collection, the library also houses the HBLL Library's academic microforms collection.


A branch of the genealogical library of the LDS Church was established in the BYU library in 1964. It contained the library of the Utah county Genealogical Historical Society and a catalog of the materials in the main genealogical library in Salt Lake City. The genealogical library branch was located on the 4th floor, with specialized reference personnel. With the help of other library workers, Eve Nielsen recataloged the Genealogical Society of Utah's Utah county records over three years. [1]:137-138
