Introduction to the Family Tree





  1. Although the Learning Center and the Tree-training page list training available for FamilySearch Family Tree, this page was created to address problems with each of those pages. The Learning Center's search engine and metadata are weak enough that a search of "Performing Temple Ordinances for Your Ancestors" does not yield that title anywhere in the search results. Searching Google for the same terms leads the user to PDF handouts without graphics rather than the lesson's video, which is the preferred medium.
