Free book scanning at the conference by FamilySearch

Share Your Family History Books With the World

Have you always wanted to quickly and easily share a family history or genealogy book with others?  Have you written a book that could help people with their research on a family name or locality?  FamilySearch will scan your family history and genealogy books at the upcoming National Genealogical Society Conference in Las Vegas, add them to the online digital book collection Family History Books at and give you a digital copy–for free!

Family History Books is a collection of more than 80,000 digitized genealogy and family history publications from the archives of some of the most important family history libraries in the world. The collection includes family histories, county and local histories, genealogy magazines and how-to-books, gazetteers, and medieval histories and pedigrees.

FamilySearch is interested in:
  • Autobiographies and biographies containing genealogical material
  • Family histories with genealogical information
  • Indexes to records 
  • Local and county histories
Bring your books to the FamilySearch booth #105 where they can be scanned during the conference.  We will scan the book and give you a copy of the scanned image at the conference in addition to posting your book online. FamilySearch must have permission from the author or copyright holder to scan copyrighted books.
