The LDS church has put together resources for teaching a family history class. They have a student manuel, a teacher manuel, and a DVD to use in the class.

The Student Manuel

The Teacher Manuel

The DVD

The DVD is divided into 7 sections, each one considing with each lesson in the manuel. This is a useful tool for every family to use in your Family Home Evenings. You can do one video each week, or one section a week, for a total of 7 Family Home Evenings. Children and youth will enjoy the videos just as much as adults will.


Here are some extra class ideas to use for your students:
