Sunday FAQs

Do you offer classes or other instruction besides on Sunday?

Yes! Besides Sunday Classes, we also have many other virtual classes, webinars, instructional videos, and tutorials.

Are your Sunday classes recorded?

We do record most of the classes and/or provide copies of handouts and slides. See our virtual classes archive.

Can I get personal assistance with family history on Sunday? 

Currently, we only have our virtual classes on Sundays, but we are currently open Monday-Friday for in-person and virtual help.

Can I schedule a group visit or class? 

We are not currently hosting groups on Sundays, but we can schedule groups in-person or virtually on weekdays Monday-Friday. We love to host YSAs, Youth, and adult groups for classes or other family history activities. To schedule a group, contact the Family History Missionaries.

Do I need to schedule an appointment during open hours?

Is the BYU Family History Library open Saturdays?

Yes, we are open most Saturdays. However, the Family History Missionaries are not currently here on Saturdays. Student reference assistance are available.

When will the BYU Family History Library open again on Sundays?

We will reopen once we are certain that health conditions will permit us to remain open long term, and once our volunteer staffing levels and capacity are at a point when we can sustainbly manage a Sunday schedule again.

"BYU access" means that the item is accessible on BYU campus or remotely for logged-in BYU students and faculty. If labeled “BYU campus” then it is available anywhere on BYU campus, but not remotely. "BYU Library" indicates that you may only access the resource while physically at the BYU Library. (If you have a personal account with any of these sites, you can access them anywhere. If so, it is best to access them directly rather than using these links.)

*FamilySearch is accessiable anywhere on the Internet, but many of the images (ca. 25-30%) require viewing at a FamilySearch family history center. BYU Library is also designated as a family history center allowing access to these images.
