Why Family History?
Family history is more than a hobby, it’s an activity that blesses both the living and the dead. Connecting generations with the blessings of the temple serves ancestors, safeguards individuals, and strengthens families.
Online Resources Make it Easy
Success is at your fingertips, and in the comfort of home. Cutting-edge technology makes family history wireless, paperless and portable. It’s so convenient to go and do.
What is FamilySearch?
FamilySearch is the name used by the Church to describe its family history efforts, products, and services. FamilySearch.org is the name of the primary website where you can discover, preserve and share your family history, and submit names to the temple.

To best serve you, FamilySearch has partnered with commercial family history websites to provide access to 3.5 times the records – free of charge to Latter-day Saints (that’s a $900 annual value). It’s never been easier to find your family.
Technology sharing between FamilySearch and these major partners multiplies offerings, provides deeper and broader research, and combines the unique assets of each partner to best benefit you, the patron.
