One of the most satisfying aspects of Family History work is finding new family members through research efforts. Researching has become significantly easier with the help of multiple search services, "Record Hints", and such. So many different types of records are on-line now, such as Census Records, Military Draft Records, City Directories, Probates & Wills, birth, marriage, and death certificates, obituaries, and more.
This site will help you with information about the variety of resources available to you. Feel free to explore them. New information is added often, so please check back periodically.

Library Resources

Did you know that our library is NOT just a place for genealogical research? In addition to classes on a variety of family history topics, we also have equipment to help with preserving photographs, audio tapes, & VHS movies.

The BYU Special Collections Death Index is a searchable online database with INDEX information, hosted by BYU Idaho that covers years through 2016.

The Eastern Idaho Obituary Collection was created by volunteers at the Idaho Falls Idaho FamilySearch Library and has been indexed and digitized through 2013. This is hosted on the FamilySearch website.

This obituary collection contains images of obituaries from 1860 to present time. If you are looking for obituaries before 2014, please use the link to the Eastern Idaho Obituary Collection (left panel), a quicker way to find the images.
