One on One Help

We offer BASIC HELP any time we ore open in three areas:

Getting Started with Your Family History - Using Family Tree - Using Family Search

Classes and Workshops

Our Focus this year is to teach you how to use the many tools found on FamilySearch.

Our classes are regularly scheduled during the 1st and 3rd weeks of each month.

 One class is taught the first Tuesday at 11 am and repeated the first Thursday at 7 pm.

 The second class is taught the 3rd Tuesday at 11 and repeated the 3rd Thursday at 7 pm.

In January, May and October the first of each class falls on a Thursday and is repeated the next Tuesday.

We help those preparing for missions to do the Family History assignments.

We help with the BSA Genealogy Merit Badge.

All classes are taught at Sunset Heights FHC.
