Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints & Foyle Family History Centre, Derry - Londonderry.

Established in the early 1850's many early members emigrated due to poverty and persecution. The current building took 4 years to build using member labour and on 6 November 1966 was the first LDS building dedicated in Ireland. In 1990's a family history centre was opened with FREE access to the public and since that time literally thousands of people (local and foreign), schools, community groups, tourists and individuals to trace their ancestors and complete their family history.

Generally no appointment is necessary but as the Church may be busy with tour groups, training etc, it may be advisable to call beforehand to ensure access to the resources you may need, will be available.
