FamilySearch Centres?

Dick Eastman has posted an announcement with the title "Godfrey Memorial Library and FamilySearch Centers Announce Partnership." The term "FamilySearch Center" is a new one to me, but the announcement makes it clear we're looking at a rebranding of the Family History Center, another strong signal of the direction the LDS Church is taking in its genealogy mission.

"We are excited to include Godfrey Memorial Library to our list of premium databases or services offered throughout FamilySearch centers worldwide. They provide some premier resources that will certainly be of great value to FamilySearch center patrons," said Paul Nauta, manager of public affairs for FamilySearch. "In return Godfrey Memorial Library will significantly broaden its reach and awareness by being introduced to scores of researchers through 4500 FamilySearch facilities in over 70 countries,"
