262.1: Family History (D&C Gospel Doctrine Lesson 40, Updated)

Finding Joy in Temple and Family History Work


When we think about family history, we imagine computer searches, visiting graveyards, and perhaps a DNA test. But it turns out that the most precious family history remains alive… in our own stories and the life stories of family members. If we do not record them, they will be lost forever. Engaging in living family history not only preserves history, it helps us understand ourselves and live more fully.
