Manila Newspaper Looks at

MANILA, PHILIPPINES -- The Philippines Sun-Star looked at the LDS Church's genealogy resources in today's edition, finding an LDS Family History Center next to the Manila LDS Temple, and the Church's site on the Internet. The article describes the information available at both the center and on the website, including what information is available on people that lived in the Philippines.

Among all Asian countries, the Philippines has the largest number of available records, including data from hospital, municipal and catholic church records. The center next to the Manila Temple, in Quezon City, has some 50,000 rolls of microfilm, according to the Sun-Star, and is one of more than 100 centers in the Philippines. Like the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, the Philippines center was opened in 1985.

In addition to a description of the local Family History Center, the article also describes the overall collection of the Family History Library. It also gives a detailed look at exactly what information is available on the Internet at the LDS Church's website.
