Store.LDS.org

  • My Family: Stories That Bring Us Together—This easy-to-use booklet guides you through the process of gathering your family stories and photos and can help people gather and prepare family names to add to Family Tree. It can also be used to teach Church members how to have their own experience in finding and taking family names to the temple. The booklet can be ordered in 32 languages. For more information about how to use this important booklet, click here.
  • Family History: Get Started Now—This trifold brochure with space for a four-generation family tree and a panel for photos or stories is ideal for those who are interested in building a family tree without temple ordinance information. It can be ordered in 32 languages and customized through BYU Print Services for images and colors that reflect your local needs. You can add your family history center contact information as well. Some directors find that these brochures are economical enough that they distribute them to public libraries, societies, and other places of interest within the community.
  • Family History Coloring Book—Starting in May of 2015, the new Family History coloring book will also be available in English and other supported languages will be available in June. This is a great tool for inviting even the youngest children in your area to have a family history experience while visiting your center. Each page contains both a picture or activity, teaching about the importance of family history and a follow up activity they can do at home or while they are visiting your Family History Center.

    center. We have 7 computers and we are all in use most each day of each week. I work with an average of 25
    people a week helping them find
    family a lot non members. We would
    love to be able to offer use of discovery
    center to our area and all the stake

    programs to be able to help the community in any way we can, Any
    info would be so appreciated.

  3. Lisa,
    Are there materials for a ward Family History Discovery Day? online or pre-printed? Anyone published tips on hosting one? Our Stake has not held one in years; so our Ward ( 33% of the entire Stake’s TFH activity) is doing this one as a dry run so to speak.
