Why Should I Record Classes I Teach?

  • Teach hundreds more people online at familysearch.org
  • Build your teaching reputation
  • Share your genealogical expertise
  • Educate genealogists about your resources
  • Preserve a class you have taught multiple times so you can move on to new classes
  • Give back to the genealogical community
  • Post the class on your website

How Can I Get My Classes Online?

FamilySearch will be at select locations throughout the world at various times to record local family history classes and post them online. A presenter can also come to Salt Lake City at any time to record a class. Your recorded class will look like the Irish Research Series 

This service is free, but classes must be about something related to family history research. Possible topics are:

  • Research in a state, province, parish, or county
  • Research tools
  • Record types or collections
  • Technology resources

To schedule a recording, send an e-mail to turpinca@familysearch.org. Include your name, phone number, class title, brief summary of the class, and the location you plan to record your class. (See Where and When to Record a Class). FamilySearch will call you back to schedule a time during the available dates.
