Family History Sunday School: Lesson 4

Lesson Summary - Recording Family History Information
  • "The Angels May Quote from It" - President Spencer W. Kimball (Feb 2003 New Era)
    • The Savior emphasized the importance of keeping records
    • Begin with yourself by creating your own journal
    • Be your true self and do not over-emphasize the negative
"What could you do better for your children and your children’s children than to record the story of your life, your triumphs over adversity, your recovery after a fall, your progress when all seemed black, your rejoicing when you had finally achieved?"
  • Some suggestions for recording information:
    • Use complete names and be consistent when you are adding information
      • Also pay close attention when you are searching for your ancestors so you do not research the wrong lineage
    • Information that you add on your tree for your living relatives will not be available even to those relatives; it will only exist in your tree due to the privacy policy
      • The information will be merged once the person has passed on
  • FamilySearch Tree - Android App details
