  1. Promoting Ward Family History

  2. Promoting Ward Family History • Essentials of a Successful Ward Family History Program • How to Organize a Family History Committee • Ward Family History Self Help Guide Documentation

  3. Prerequisite: Hands-On To be successful, a ward Family History Program must be hands on. It cannot be just a Sunday class. Ward members need side-by-side instruction in all phases of Family History work to not feel overwhelmed by this effort.

  4. Ward Unity If a ward member attends the Sunday class, has in-home personal computer help and attends the Family History Center with a committee member who guides them through the research process, family history will become one of the most exciting activities a ward can be involved in.

  5. Elder Boyd K. Packer, The Holy Temple “Genealogical work has the power to do something for the dead. It has an equal power to do something to the living. Genealogical work of Church members has a refining, spiritualizing, tempering influence on those who are engaged in it.

  6. Ward Spirituality The spirituality in a ward will increase as ward members attend to temple ordinances for their own family members.

  7. Elder Boyd K. Packer, Ensign, Nov 1975, 99 “Revelation comes to individual members as they are led to discover their family records in ways that are miraculous indeed. And there is a feeling of inspiration attending this work that can be found in no other. When we have done all that we can do, we shall be given the rest.
