The Family History Guide

Take a look at this new website, The Family History Guide.

A friend recommended The Family History Guide because I teach classes on FamilySearch's Family Tree. There are a lot of resources on the website for teachers/trainers/lecturers but if you click around a bit you will find there is a lot of information for users too.

For example, scroll down to the Sudent Guides on the Training Modules page. Nice!

Also, look at Projects. There are 14 goals related to Family Tree to make it better for you and for everyone else. Hint: You can use Legacy to help accomplish these goals since Legacy can directly sync to the Family Tree.

This website is not owned or operated by FamilySearch or the LDS Church but this looks like it is going to be a great resource.

The Family History Guide is in the running for the 2016 RootsTech Innovator Showdown  Make sure you watch their promo video.

  1. It is now official. As of today The Family History Guide is now on the FamilySearch.org website in the Learning Center AND in the Family History Center Services Portal. That puts The Family History Guide in all of the English speaking Family History Centers throughout the world! The rest of the world will get The FH Guide as soon as we complete additional translations which are already underway. Go to this link:


    The Family History Guide is in the left column. If you click on the "Online Research Courses" in the center column you will see TFHG in the right column under "New Courses".

    There is also a new 2 page Getting Started Guide for FHC's that can be accessed by clicking on the "Course Handout" pdf under the main The FH Guide picture.

    This is a HUGE step for us that makes The FH Guide a recommended learning program from Family Search.
