Are family history centers going to reopen ever during my lifetime?
While there are many records available through the digitalization project, due to restrictions on some records, they can only be viewed at a family history center. In my area, the FHC have been closed for year and a half. While most public libraries are open to some extent and lots of other businesses have returned to business as usual with or without some guidelines, I have not heard any news that the FHC are ever going to reopen, and so perhaps the in center restrictions can somehow legally be temporarily reversed so people can continue to do their research in documents that they are prevented from viewing due to center closures. There are at least 3 FHC in my city and none of them has reopened. I thank you in advance for your time.
