With deep regret we announce that the Family History Training Center in Orem, Utah, is being closed. For over 20 years, we have provided quality training to family history missionaries, those with family history callings, and others who desired to learn more about family history.

Our August 5-day class was our final class. If you paid for a class that will not be held, your money will be refunded.

The Class Materials page will remain available for a period of time for registered users. However, further updates will not be made and eventually the page will be taken down.

We express profound gratitude to the many students, missionaries, and volunteers who made the Family History Training Center successful. You have blessed countless lives, and your influence will continue.
