The LDS Church’s Park City Family Tree Center, originally opened on that community’s historic Main Street for the 2002 Winter Olympics, is closing for good.
Church spokesman Daniel Woodruff said the facility’s last day of operations will be Wednesday.
“Those [in the Park City area] wishing to research their ancestry can continue to do so at the multiple family history centers in the Salt Lake City area,” he said in a news release.
Woodruff also announced changes to the operations of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ visitors centers in London and New Zealand.
The building for the London Temple Visitors Centre has reopened but no longer serves as a dedicated information site for those curious about Mormonism.
“[It] is now open as a waiting area for nontemple patrons,” Woodruff said. “The Hyde Park Chapel Visitors Centre will continue to welcome guests in the London area.”
The New Zealand Temple and its adjacent visitors center will close in July for extensive renovations. Visitors instead will be encouraged to go to the new Church History Centre and Museum in Hamilton, New Zealand.
Woodruff said that in all three cases, the closure decisions were “made after considering the best use of the church’s resources as well as the needs and demands of each area.”
