Plan to attend all 3 sessions to learn to edit and add additional relatives, sources, pictures and stories and clear names for Temple Work.

We offer, what we call an Intern Class, both a daytime and an evening class in September and January.

Designed for the serious minded researcher, this is not a crash course for beginners, but advanced, comprehensive instruction for those desiring a solid foundation in Managing a Research Project in Family History.  For more detail about this series of classes go to: http://www.familyhistorymagic.com/Intern.html

You are welcome to drop in at the Family History Center any time we are open without an appointment. We have trained staff who can often answer your questions and help you with the concepts, skills, resources, etc. you need right now. Also, through the Church, we have Internet Sites and Databases you have to pay to use from your home.

The Family History Center is open:

Mondays and Fridays: 9 to 5

Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays: 9 to 9

Closed July 4, 24 and September 2 (Labor Day)
