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