The Grants Pass Oregon Family History Center is located in the Grants Pass Stake building of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 1969 Williams Highway. Entrance to the Family History Center is on the Harbeck side. The staff is made up of people who love family history and enjoy helping other people find their roots. We are not professional genealogists. We serve all of Grants Pass but not the Cave Junction area as they have their own small FHC.
