Calendar and Events

Upcoming Events

Beginning in February we will be offering a six-week course designed to help Ward Family History Consultants learn their roles and increase their skills.  It is important to begin training with the first class because each class is designed to build on knowledge received in the previous class.  Each class will be presented twice weekly to better meet your schedule, one daytime class and one evening class.  Please don't stop coming if you miss a class - we will help you make it up individually.
