Idaho Falls Idaho FamilySearch Library/Discover-Gather-Connect
What does it mean to "Discover, Gather, Connect"? This is a catchphrase to help keep us focused on what family history is about. If we are inexperienced and just starting out in family history, we may be opt to "discover" more about our deceased relatives. Discovering helps us "connect" with our deceased relatives. Others may be more experienced and wish to "gather". By preserving our rich heritage of photos, documents, and stories, we are gathering. Others may enjoy finding new family members to add to Family Tree. This is also gathering. Indexing is another way that we can gather names of deceased individuals to a searchable database. As we go through the process of discovery and gathering, our hearts connect to those we learn about.
