FamilySearch This article describes the services and resources available at a Family History Center, a branch facility of the Family History Library.

The Guam FHC serves the U.S. Territory of Guam in Micronesia.  Our population includes high percents of immigrants from islands throughout Micronesia, the Philippine Islands, Korea, Japan, and other areas of Asia. The history of the island has long-time ties to Spain and the U.S. We have materials available in many languages in addition to English, and have become experienced in the unique challenges of family history research in this part of the world.
