BYU Family History Library

Brigham Young University Family History Library
a long time since I looked at this site - famous for pioneering Google books

Family History Archive:
"The Family History Archive is a collection of published genealogy and family history books.
The archive includes histories of families, county and local histories, how-to books on genealogy, genealogy magazines and periodicals (including some international), medieval books (including histories and pedigrees), and gazetteers.
It also includes some specialized collections such as the Filipino card collection and the “Liahona Elders Journal.”

The books come from the collections of the FamilySearch Family History Library, the Allen County Public Library, the Houston Public Library – Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research, the Mid-Continent Public Library – Midwest Genealogy Center, the BYU Harold B. Lee Library, the BYU Hawaii Joseph F. Smith Library, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Church History Library." - Family History Library: "Gifts of family genealogies, organized collections and other records that contain genealogical information are welcome.

You can even write a history of your family and place a copy in the library. Please use the authorized gift form when making a donation. Contact the Genealogical Society of Utah on the fifth floor of the Church Office Building (801-538-2978) for more information on the types of materials the library can accept and how to prepare your materials.
