You will learn things like how and where to start with your family history and how to use the latest technology to solve real research problems.
Getting Started for Beginners
Where do I start? If this is the question you ask when you think about family history, then attending the Getting Started classes at Klein Texas Family History Fair is a great solution! With classes especially designed for those who are just beginning, you will learn:
- the basics of starting your family history
- how to use family history tools like FamilySearch’s Family Tree
- simple ways to record and preserve family stories
Additional classes will be offered for LDS Church members where they can learn the importance of family history, the basics to build their family tree and all the great resources to begin.
Fulfilling Your Family History Calling
The full blessings of the temple can be realized when members of the church participate in family history, take their own family names to the temple and perform saving ordinances on their behalf. The training classes for Family History Consultants and Priesthood leaders available during the Family History Fair will not only be informative, but they will inspire you as you fulfill your calling in the work of salvation.
