Family Ties


Family History Consultants for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are called to this position to help members develop the skills needed to identify their ancestors. One of the ways to do this is meet with your members and provide fun interactive ways to learn about Family History and Temple related topics.

Kathy, another Family History Consultant, and I have decided to have a monthly Family History group called “Family Ties”. We wanted this to be more than just a class on “how to do your genealogy.” So, we decided to have our first meeting as a brainstorming event to decide what topics the others are interested in. Below are just a few of ideas Kathy and I have come up with and I wanted to share them with you. Can you think of topics we did not think of? Please share them with me at the Bellaonline Genealogy Forum. I would love to hear of your ideas and suggestions. Have you had a similar program in your area? Tell me what you did; the pros and cons of it.

As we hold these activities in the upcoming months, I will report back to you on the topics discussed and what we learned from each other. I look forward to your input as well.
