Closing of FHCs
Our Family History Center was closed permanently as of today. Victorville California. We served three stakes. The room we were using is being repurposed for another group. I was told that we were not the only center that would be closing that this will be church-wide.
It there a plan in place so that people will be able to access the documents and sites that are now 'only viewed at a FHC'? (Such as the agreement with Newspapers.com and the other portal sites).
We are possibly setting up a small room with four computers to be used as a "Consultant" room - to be used by the wards that access this building. Will these computers be able to be configured to access the restricted documents viewable only at a center? Other buildings within the three stake area already have a couple computers in small rooms for family history purposes, but they do not currently have access to the FHC records. Will there be any plans to allow for those to access records as well so that people can go to their closest building?
I was looking to access the FHC Technical Support (North America) (Private) page, but I get a message that it is no longer available.
