History Center has new CDs

The South Lake Tahoe Latter-day Saints History Center has received the Pedigree Resource Files 1-20. These CDs contain lineage-linked pedigrees that have been submitted to the Family History Department of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. These pedigrees contain unedited notes and sources, with a total of more than one million individuals on each CD.

The History Center also has Freedman’s Bank Records on CD.

The Freedman’s Bank was created to assist newly freed slaves during and after the Civil War. They cover the time period from about 1864 to 1871 and document the names and family relationships of those who used the bank. While the information contained in these records is very incomplete by normal genealogical standards, they are a vital source for those of African American ancestry.

Volunteers at the center will assist people in placing microfilm and microfiche orders and in doing their own research.

The Family History Center is located at the corner of Spruce and Herbert streets in the church building. The center is open to the public and the hours are from 1 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. For more information call (530) 544-1214.
