Please, does anyone know the opening hours of the Family Search Centre ( Latter Day Saints ) Winchester Hants? I have tried phoning but there is never a reply. Is it still functioning ?
Thank you

What does the familysearch website have to say about it?

OhGrandma

OhGrandma Report 26 Oct 2012 10:54

The familysearch website gives the address but no other details.

Says it doesn't have microfilm circulation privileges.

Stuart, where are the hours listed?

You could try this English general phone number - at least you should get to someone who has more information? (I am assuming that the phone number that Stuart posted is the one you tried)

Finding a FamilySearch Center

There are three ways to find the location of a FamilySearch Center.

Go to FamilySearch.org and click on FamilySearch Centers. If you're searching for a center in the United States, type your city and state in the location fields, and click on [Search]. If you're searching for a center outside the United States, enter the city and country. If you do not find what your looking for, try the "Advanced Search", where you can add additional search terms.

xxxxx Telephone FamilySearch support at 1-866-406-1830 (in North America) or 00-800-1830-1830 (in the United Kingdom). For other international locations, please refer to the Help:FamilySearch Support E-mail and Worldwide Telephone Directory

Check your local phone directory under "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints." Call and ask for the location of a Family History Center in your area.

Each center has unique hours of operation, and may have changed from the hours posted on our site. It is a good idea to call the center for their scheduled hours before you visit.

No hours listed, hoped the phone no. might help.

I happen to have used the Portsmouth centre many moons ago it seems. Have just dialled their number and an answer phone message there says that unfortunately due to circumstances they are having to close. Message dated 1st September. But at least a message, so perhaps that is what has happened at Winchester, but earlier and there is no longer even a message??

My friend goes to the Thornhill branch.
I will have to check with her but last year she was going to Portsmouth to do research.

Is it records for Hampshire that you need?
Could you outline what you are hoping to find, then maybe people could suggest another source.
