5 Minute Genealogy—Sharing Information with Others

You may have asked yourself: Why would I share what I've been researching with others? Why would they care? How can I share my family history? Sharing research can answer questions, fill in gaps, connect living relatives, and get others involved. In this episode, Jesse and Tom will show you the fun and importance of sharing your discoveries with others. View this video here.

First, a digital camera in the hand is faster than a pen in the hand—much faster. Full Story

"Haz tu Arbol Genealogico...El Arbol mas Hermoso de la Creacion"
Por medio de la historia familiar descubrimos el árbol más hermoso de la creación: nuestro árbol genealógico. Sus numerosas raíces se remontan a la historia y sus ramas se extienden a través de la eternidad. La historia familiar es la expresión extensiva del amor eterno; nace de la abnegación y provee la oportunidad de asegurarse para siempre una unidad familiar".
(Élder J. Richard Clarke, Liahona julio de 1989, pág.69)
