Search and Serve Youth Conference

The Riverton FamilySearch Library offers a one day Family History youth conference activity for ward and multi-wards.

The library youth conference activities are designed to help youth and their leaders feel the Spirit of Elijah and learn how its influence can bless the lives of both the living and the dead through Family History and Temple Ordinance work.

Workshops provide instruction on the key elements of genealogical research and offer hands-on experience to help participants with their individual family history responsibilities. Young Men and Women will also be encouraged to use their technical skills to help their own family, ward members, friends and others with their family history efforts.
